Mayor Garcetti does damage control over 3 more months of stay-at-home


The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, on Tuesday, tried to do some damage control after his health director stated that stay-at-home orders in LA would be extended for at least through July. A furor ensued. Residents have had enough.

Los Angeles County Health Director Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles Times reported, said all restrictions would be in place through the end of June. This comes as other major U.S. cities, and states are easing the sweeping restrictions imposed weeks ago in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I want to reassure people because I think there was a lot of panic suddenly when the headlines said we’re all going to stay exactly as we are for three more months when that’s not the case,” Mayor Eric Garcetti told CNN in an interview.

Garcetti said the county is “not going to fully reopen Los Angeles…without any protections or any health orders in the next three months.”

“I think we know it’s going to be even longer than three months,” Garcetti said.

How is that reassuring? It’s worse than Ferrer’s statement. It’s going to be longer than three months?

Garcetti likely wants to keep this going until Joe Biden is elected.

Watch Garcetti do a bad job of backpedaling. He doesn’t seem to want to return to normal:
