SB County sues the State of California.

From Daily Press: San Bernardino County sues Newsom over COVID-19 stay-at-home orders

The County of San Bernardino has filed a lawsuit with the California State Supreme Court asking that stay-at-home orders be annulled. 

County lawyers wrote, "The County seeks this instant writ to reclaim its police power over its residents and vast land mass, with incorporated and unincorporated areas, to enable it to tailor regulations and orders which are specific to its residents based on facts which are unique to their locations rather than subject its residents to overbroad multi-county, Governor-implemented, regionalized lockdowns,”

The whole of San Bernardino County has just 41 ICU beds. 

47 similar suits have been dropped or dismissed. This writer wonders if the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is using this suit to look tough while knowing full well that it is an empty gesture.

Go to for day-by-day San Bernardino COVID19 data. The current county risk level is "widespread." Today we have "144,455 Confirmed COVID-19 Cases" and "1,323 Deaths."

Stay safe everyone.
