Immediately following the latest Los Angeles County outdoor dining ban, the Beverly Hills City Council unanimously opposed the order. They say there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support the ban. The order is intended to help slow the spread of deadly COVID-19.
And things get even heavier.
The city is looking into forming it’s own Beverly Hills public health department so that it govern itself during future issues.
“I am enraged by what the majority of the county supervisors voted on without having the data to do so, especially after all of us, these many, many months, have learned that eating outdoors was the safest way during COVID,” Councilwoman Lili Bosse said during Tuesday’s meeting.
Councilman Julian A. Gold also fired off on the new order.
“It says something about the arrogance of the supervisors,” Gold said. “I think we have to do everything we can … to reverse this.”
The latest restrictions are based on the worst COVID-19 surge the state has ever seen.
The Beverly Hills council’s decision is also a result of a slew of resident opposition.
As for now, it’s unclear if or when restaurants will reopen dining patios in Beverly Hills.
