Newsom Wants Curfew: End ALL Night Time Work

How do you throw a State into a massive Depression in less than 24 hours?  By issuing a statewide curfew.  Anybody that has a job from 10:00pm to 6:00am would lose their job.  People will make the whole State a ghost town, starting at 10:00pm.  The criminals will have free reign over our property, since police will be too busy harassing citizens living their lives.

The curfew might be th last straw before the people of California say enough is enough and refuse to listen to anything government says.  At that point we take off the pretend masks, we open businesses to all customers and hold massive protests at city hall and in the Capitol demanding the Governor have all Californians arrested for living.

Let them eat takeout: Newsom shuts down 94% of California, mulls curfew

Daniel Gligich, The Sun,  11/16/20 

California’s COVID-19 outlook Monday was grim.

Gov. Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health announced that 41 counties are now in the purple tier of the state’s COVID-19 reopening blueprint. 

Last week only 13 counties were in the purple tier, which represents widespread coronavirus risk. 

Fresno, Kings and Merced Counties all took the hit, meaning the whole Central Valley is now in the purple tier as coronavirus cases climb throughout the state. 

Usually the state would update the county tier assignments on Tuesdays, but the state acted early in order to pull “an emergency brake,” Newsom said. 

California saw a 51.3% increase in COVID-19 cases in the first week of November and have doubled in the last 10 days, according to state data. 

“This is simply the fastest increase California has seen since the beginning of this pandemic,” Newsom said. 

Under the state’s rules, the return to purple means restaurants, places of worship, gyms, movie theaters, museums, must cease all indoor operations and move completely outdoors, churches and all places of worship are not allowed to operate indoors and gyms must cease all indoor operations. 

All indoor gatherings are banned for counties in the purple tier, and any outdoor gatherings can have a maximum of three households. 

Previously counties had three days to make the required changes. Newsom has shortened that enforcement to one day. 

“We want to see the application and implementation of these new tiered status occur in a 24-hour period,” Newsom said. 

The state has also changed the face mask rules, now requiring all Californians to wear a face covering outside of the home. There are some exemptions, however, including people in cars who are either alone or with members of the same household, people working in an office or room alone, people actively eating or drinking and people outdoors who are at least six feet away from others. 

Moving from tier to tier also changed Monday. Newsom revealed that the state will now slide counties back a tier after just one week, not two. Counties previously had to post numbers in the worse tier for two weeks in a row to move back. 

Another change is that the state will also move counties back by multiple tiers, instead of just a one-by-one basis. The state will now assess tier assignments multiple times a week. 

Newsom also said that the state is considering implementing a curfew. 

“We also are considering – full disclosure and a little bit of a preview – the notion of a curfew,” Newsom said. “Before you jump in terms of your mindset of whether that’s a good idea or a bad idea, we are assessing that as well.”

Fresno County posted a new daily case rate of 13.9 per 100,000 people, according to the state, which was adjusted to 14.7 to account for the county’s below average testing totals. The county’s positivity rate was 7%. 

In order to move back into the purple tier, Fresno County will need to have a case rate between 4-7 and a positivity rate between 5-8% for two consecutive weeks.

  1. Does that include all emergency first responders and medical personnel?

  2. Robert Wilson says

    The only person who should have a curfew is Gavin Newsom!!! This punk needs to be recalled and sued personally, along with Dr. Mark Ghaly. After proving their science used for this shutdown is bunk, they should both get hit with punitive damage judgements and criminal convictions for the deliberate, willful damage they have done to this once great state!

  3. Dick and Lois Daybell says

    Sure sounds like all freedoms are being taken away if your not a public employee.
    How many government offices are being closed for the virus?

  4. More fuel for the recall effort. Time to get done with it.

  5. Otis Needleman says

    No, I don’t think so. Newsom can’t even follow his own rules, so how can he expect us to obey them?

  6. Paint Brush says

    What happened to the Kiley, Gallagher lawsuit that ordered him to cease and desist with the illegal run around the legislature dictates? He is under order by the court to stop dictating these fantasies of his, so we are no longer obligated to listen to him or follow anything he says.

  7. He can stick his mask rules and curfew up his arse! I bet he is not wearing one in Maui, nor practicing his social distancing nor the required 14 day travel ban stay in your hotel quarantine. These creeps need to live by their own rules but then again he is a DICKtator in his own mind. The fact that people are following his stupid rules is the thing that makes me wonder “how controllable are these people”?
