November 17, 2020 (San Diego’s East County) – New COVID-19 cases in San Diego have broken all-time records the past two days, at 1,087 and 833 on Nov. 14 and 15.
The County yesterday announced that it has issued cease and desist letters to 10 businesses and churches caught in “blatant and willful” violations of purple Tier orders banning indoor operations for worship services, restaurants and gyms, according to Greg Cox, Chair of the County Board of Supervisors. The County has also sent letters to all regional mayors urging help to enforce public health orders.
But El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells has thus far defiantly told media outlets that his police will not prioritize enforcement.
