The Murrieta City Council is considering a resolution that would “ordain” all businesses as “essential” if they provide products and services and follow “appropriate proven safety protocols” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The resolution to be considered during the Jan. 19 city council meeting further “demands” that Newsom “reconsider his unfair and uncompassionate discrimination on which businesses can stay open and survive, and which businesses must stay closed and face demise,” according to the document’s text.
If passed by the council, though, nothing changes. The resolution won’t supersede Gov. Gavin Newsom’s safety restrictions and instead is a formal expression of opinion by the council.
