California governor gives exemption to entertainment
industry from stay-at-home order 1

SACRAMENTO, CA – The State of California has
one of the strictest requirements when it comes to the COVID-19
pandemic. The Governor is requiring people to stay at home instead
of enjoying their normal lives and routine…that is except for
those in the
industry, who are apparently above his

As millions of Californians
endure another coronavirus stay-at-home order, Gov. Gavin Newsom
(D) has reportedly decided to exempt the state’s signature
industry from his lockdown mandate, allowing film and TV shoots to

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom is requiring everyone in
the state in the purple tier areas to stay at home between the
hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. every day between now and Dec. 21.

Although there has been no scientific explanation as to how or
why the virus is more dangerous after 10 p.m. and less so after 5
a.m., those requirements significantly hamper American’s daily
lives in the state.

Now, Newsom has exempted anyone who works in any manner in the
entertainment industry from complying with his guidelines. Not sure
what makes them “essential workers,” but it is California.

Perhaps the reason behind the move is the amount of money the
entertainment industry provides to the state of California. The
industry employs thousands of people in various roles beyond actors
and producers. They employ camera men and women, sound engineers,
electricians, carpenters, truck drivers, makeup artists and

Not only does the entertainment industry employ tens of
thousands of employees, they also help keep surrounding businesses
afloat. Restaurants, hotels, and others that help keep the movie
sets prepared and ready for shooting, also function when the
entertainment industry is thriving.

When the first round of lockdowns started in California in
March, the entertainment industry was not exempted. This caused
movie and television productions to be delayed or stopped
altogether during that time.

Not only were those who were directly employed by the
entertainment industry suffering pay losses, so were the employees
of businesses that support the industry. As a result, thousands of
people were left without a source of income during the

As restrictions around the state began to lift, entertainment
production in some areas began to slowly pick up. Businesses would
most assuredly be shut down again, as most movie production is done
during the evening hours, until Newsom exempted the industry from
the lockdown requirements.

Newsom’s latest restrictions come at a time when he is facing
over a recent dinner in a restaurant in which he is
pictured not wearing a face mask. Not only was he not wearing any
face covering, none of the others in the photo were wearing one and
there does not appear to be any social distancing.

Thankfully the entertainment
industry is considered essential and exempt from newsoms temp stay
at home order. So as long as they keep producing I get to keep my
job 🙏🏼

In that incident, Newsom was attending a birthday party for a
friend that was held at an expensive restaurant in Napa Valley,
French Laundry. Newsom claims that he did not know the event would

Newsom went on to apologize to those who called him out for
violating the very strict rules that he himself imposed on the

He said:

“I made a bad mistake. Instead of sitting down I
should have stood up and walked back and got into my car and drove
to my house.”

He continued:

“Now on the minimize mixing, I would be remiss if I
did not acknowledge something…And that is to very soberly
acknowledge that a few weeks ago as I was asked to go to a
friend’s 50th birthday…

“The spirit of what I am preaching all the time was
contradicted and I’ve got to own that. And so I want to apologize
to you because I need to preach and practice.”

hard for small businesses, especially in this state. I just think
it’s ridiculous. They’re going about this all the wrong

take-out, drive thru, and/or delivery services. Wineries and
breweries will be allowed to continue their retail operations,
provided they adhere to current protocols. 

During one of the weekend protests in San Clemente, Syndie Ly,
who helped organize the protest said:

“Governor Newsom’s sweeping edicts by moving 95
percent of California to purple tier and a curfew is an abuse of
power. We are all responsible adults so we can make our individual

personal liberties.â€

Tito Ortiz for Huntington Beach City Council said that people are
fed up.

Brown said:

“The event last night was over 1,000 patriots pushing
