The Tiger Bar in June Lake Ordered to Close by Mono County Public Health Officer.
Are the public health authorities finally getting serious in the efforts to enforce compliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders and public health orders in the state? That it is the Mono County Public Health Officer, Dr. Tom Boo, that took action should surprise no one. Boo has consistently and aggressively approached the need for public health orders and compliance from the beginning of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
Increasingly, there are many complaints on social media about the lack of enforcement of the public health orders, which some suggest are only “recommendations.” Others make specious claims that Constitutional rights are being violated or that there is a government plot or conspiracy, calling the public health crisis a “plandemic,” a deliberate attempt by government to “silence and control the American people,” and then going on to derisively refer to the public that follow health orders as “sheeple.”
Many businesses were clamoring to “reopen,” promising to comply with health and safety protocols to safeguard their employees and their customers, even filing attestations with the county that they would do so. However, in several instances, that appears to not be the case. This action by the Mono County Public Health Department might just be the start of that enforcement.
