Supervisor Fletcher Opposes Irresponsible Desmond/Gaspar Re-Opening Effort


Today, Supervisor Fletcher opposed a proposal brought forward by Supervisors Jim Desmond and Kristin Gaspar to request expedited guidance from the State of California to facilitate reopening activities including high risk entities like indoor gatherings without any restrictions on the number of attendees. 

Supervisor Nathan Fletcher released the following statement:      

“San Diego County has hit the community outbreak ‘trigger’ for six consecutive days and recent days have generated not only the highest reporting of new COVID cases but also a doubling of the percentage of total tests being positive. Given these facts, it is reckless and irresponsible to propose expedited re-opening of additional in-door close contact group gatherings without any restrictions on the number of attendees. This would not only increase the spread of COVID but also threatens our economic recovery. We need to exercise caution, restraint and slow things down, not speed them up.”
