Newsom Forces CA County to Reinstate COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order, Says 15 Counties on “Watchlist” – Threatens to Withhold Funding to Counties Who Flout Order

Gavin Newsom

The George Floyd riots are over so it’s back to COVID-19 fear porn.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Friday told Imperial County they must reinstate their stay-at-home order because of an ‘alarming’ trend of Coronavirus cases.

Cases. Not deaths. Cases.

Last week the Democrat tyrant imposed a statewide mandatory face mask order.

Hospitals are not overwhelmed, but Newsom is threatening California counties anyway.

“The trendlines are disturbing,” Newsom said of Coronavirus cases in Imperial County which is about 200 miles from Los Angeles.

Governor Newsom on Friday also announced a partnership with Tri-Tool manufacturing to provide free PPE to trade associations.

KTVU reported that counties who flout Newsom’s order are in jeopardy of losing funding.

Newsom also stated that 15 counties, up from 11, are on the state’s “watch list.” These counties have concerning COVID-19 trends, and those who openly flout shelter-in-place orders are in jeopardy of losing state funding.

The Department of Health compiled a list of counties that are being monitored for ‘disturbing’ Coronavirus trends.

Southern California:

  • Imperial County
  • Los Angeles County
  • Riverside County
  • San Bernardino County
  • Santa Barbara County
  • Ventura County

Northern California:

  • Contra Costa County
  • Fresno County
  • Kern County
  • Kings County
  • Sacramento County
  • San Joaquin County
  • Santa Clara County
  • Stanislaus County
  • Tulare County

Like clockwork, the media is blaming a rise in Coronavirus cases on counties reopening too early, anti-maskers and Trump rallies while completely ignoring the hundreds of thousands of BLM and Antifa rioters.
