Newsom orders California to shut down indoor activities, all bar operations
"And for Rebecca Corral with covert 19. Running rampant in California Governor Newsome is dialing back statewide, shutting down sectors of the economy that had been allowed to reopen. Hey, CBS Political reporter dug. Sovereign is joining us live and says that includes all bars, all indoor dining in many counties. The closures extend far beyond that, and I was watching a tweet this out as the governor was making the announcement, Doug and it feels like we're going back to the starting line. Almost Boy, it sure does Dan and it's pretty frustrating to a lot of people. I mean the corona viruses unchecked in the Golden State, the hospitalization and I see you numbers continue to move in the wrong direction. The positivity rate is approaching 8%. And Governor Gavin Newsom said today it is time to pull back and no longer just on a county by county basis. We are announcing additional statewide actions as it relates to our state home order here in the state of California. We are now effectively rather effective today required all counties to close their indoor act activities there indoor operations in every county, not just the 31 or so now on the state watch list. All bars must close gnome or indoor dining, movie theaters, family entertainment centers or winery tasting rooms and in those counties where the things are worst, covering more than 80% of California's people. There are further shutdowns, houses of worship, Hera nail salons, gyms and fitness centers. Malls. Non essential offices must all closed down again in the Bay Area. That list includes Alameda Contra Acosta Marin. Napa, Santa Clara Solano in Sonoma County. So in other words everywhere in the Bay Area except San Francisco and San Mateo counties, I pressed the Governor Dan about the confusion regarding restaurants in Alameda County over the last few days, and the general level of frustration among so many people about what's open and what isn't what's safe and what isn't. He acknowledged His responsibility is leader of the state. But he said too many people are just not acting with common sense. We all need to wear masks and keep a safe distance went outside reporting live Doug Sovereign, KCBS dog real quick. Also, did he mention anything about schools because classes were supposed to start in about a month. Is he going to step in on that? Or is he going to leave that to local communities? Well again a little bit of confusion there because it's some of both. He was asked a couple of times about the schools and again, as you said. No different districts are handling it differently. Some are shutting down completely doing everything remotely. Others are doing hybrids. He suggested that there's further guidance coming from the state, although he leaves it to local districts to make decisions. He congratulated Los Angeles, for example, on deciding tohave all remote schools. This fall, he said. There's some more guidance coming in the next few days from from the state regarding mask wearing at school's school buses, sports certain safety measures that will have to be taken if schools do want to reopen in person in part, or even more than in part in some district. So while he's still saying it's it's a district by district decision, the state is going to put some new mandates in place, so that's districts that do allow in person education this fall. We're going to have some stricter rules to follow. All right. Thanks very much. KCBS is Doug sovereign. You can follow him on Twitter to today with the latest at sovereign nation. Meanwhile, in

Kara Swisher on Elon Musk: Hes not bluffing
"Gone up quite a bit and I think people would do it. I do I think of anybody I think a lot of people might not and sometimes he does block and sometimes he. Does you know sorta pontificate on twitter. But I think he has. He's he's done manufacturing facilities. Lots of places I think Texas OUGHTA welcoming you don't so I don't know why wouldn't was most Silicon Valley. Ceo's and tech CEOS talk about their relationship with their employees aloft. The relationship with employees is very very important and and the reason I mentioned that is if you're willing to effectively give up ten thousand people in California to go elsewhere also. I should also mention at least online. Their employees that appear to have leaked memos from the company suggesting that they've been bullied or threatened to either come to work or to lose unemployment insurance in the like that was happening at other big tech companies. There would be an uproar. Yes yeah I had a long history of this. And there's a lot of reporting on it and he pushed back really hard against it and and you know it's a really interesting question. He's he remember the last time this happened when they were building A. I think it was the three. That was the same thing. He was sleeping on the factory floor. They felt safety standards. Weren't in place. There was lots of leaks in just kept going and this is kind of his. He feels like he's on a mission whenever you talk to amid it feels like he's on a mission and he has to have this happen if you notice he was saying that other automakers got a break but only tesla was singled out He feels if this is critical. I know it sounds like that is not so I think he really does like a man on a mission so he is. Impatience is very clear in these tweets. I you know. Some of them are unfortunate some of the tweets and I don't know if he understands kind of the IMF the overall impact of what he might be setting off But I he's just going to go forward and it'll be able to the officials to respond Love to graduate. But it's not the these techniques are not are not the not just similar. They're not dissimilar techniques. Let me ask you a somewhat political question. It relates to trump. He now has the backing of trump in a very public way. And he's sort of on the trump side. If you will of the liberate America concepts but on the other end for many many years he would least privately and in some cases publicly. Derived trump and sell Tesla's enlarge part on the idea of of trying to end climate. Change in all of these things. So how do you? How do you square that up? He's a complex person to tell you. I don't think he's necessarily a trump supporter. That's not I've never heard that night. Gore's you know. He has been critical and he was on. That business council was he wanted to try to get as an impact on climate change. And so it's a complex situation. It doesn't mean that he's not. He's not using twitter to the same effect sort of rally his troops and he does have a lot of fans You know it's his technique of doing this. This is a you know high drama I dodge in the rents than he manages to. Somehow settle things Sometimes it turns out well. Sometimes it doesn't but this is a guy like he went up against the SEC. From what I can tell they didn't really you know they warned him and they said he can't do it again and then he did it again and so I you know. I don't know if he feels there's a lot of consequences for doing what he's doing and his aim is to build these. Tesla's An and you know he had a lot of criticism from the Alameda. County officials. What are they going to do? I mean I think the mistake is is getting into this kind of fight with him publicly. But I guess it wasn't working out privately scenes and then you have Gavin newsom in the middle of it which is really interesting. You know. Because he's been supportive of loss really important to keep manufacturing in California That eventually just like happened Amazon. You either saying we want this or we're GONNA put up with this or we're not gonNA pay for this and then you can go elsewhere

Elon Musk Says Tesla Suing California County, Moving Headquarters Out Of State
"Week. California started phasing in the reopening of business including manufacturing so when that was announced Tesla CEO Elon. Musk sent out a memo to ten thousand employees at a factory in Alameda. County telling them to come into work the next day but just a few hours after that memo the local government in Alameda County said not so fast they were keeping tighter restrictions in place and Tesla's factory was not allowed to open yet in response. Tesla sued and Monday. Musk said they're opening their factory. Anyway here to tell us all about this lawsuit and what it could mean for businesses and governments across the US is our reporter. Tim Higgins Tim. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you all right. Let's start with Tesla. What is Tesla arguing in this suit? One of the things that you must angry about is that The California state government has to open up again including manufacturing and he's arguing that essentially that the local government has overstepped its authority by saying that. Tesla's factory cannot reopen that. The governor's office allowing for the state to reopen and that the US constitution allows for these sorts of things so really Arguments at the county. Government is overreaching and then he made a comparison to another facility. That is a nearby county. What's his argument? There Tesla has its has one assembly plant in the US but it has a number of facilities around California that help with the business. And there's a factory that is not that far from the assembly pant that has in a different county and the people there are not facing the same kind of shelter in place restrictions. Tassels reason the question of why are why isn't a uniform wise? They're pointing to figures. They say indicate that the rate of infection is very similar Why is one place stricter than the other so? Musk actually went a step further and reopened TUSLA yesterday. Right surprising a lot of people Monday. Tweeting out that He was opening the factory starting production that day in fact he said he's going to be on the assembly line and that if the police show up to arrest people he should be the one that's arrested so let's just back up a little bit. This sets tesla apart from many of its tag counterparts right. I mean facebook and others have announced that they're not bringing employees back to the office for months. Why is Elon? Musk and tesla wire. Wise Tusla's taking such a big stand here exactly facebook and Google and others. They can largely do their work at home on computers. Were Tesla makes cars. It needs an army of workers in the factory banging on metal to build these vehicles so they can sell them and without the Fremont Factory Online. It doesn't have anything to sell here in the US eventually. The cars that they made prior the shutdown. They're not gonNA have anything. So if Tesla is going to take advantage of any potential economic rebound that something might occur in the months to come as the country learns to live with the Corona virus. It needs cars. The shutdown came at a bad time for Tesla. It was just a ramping up. Production of its newest vehicle. The Model Y Compact Sport Utility vehicle is a vehicle that Elon. Musk has said could be. The company's top seller analysts expected to do very well. It's a good segment for this kind of vehicle and really there was a lot of enthusiasm among investors about the year ahead and so what the Krono virus has done is essentially. Put everything on ice and The problem for you on musk. Is that this. Factory has been sitting Essentially vacant for weeks. Now and he needs the lifeblood of the company to kick back on. I guess comparing to facebook isn't quite fair. I mean the better comparison might be to other. Automakers what are we seeing Michigan do for example and how our automakers they're responding. That's some of the frustration that musk has been. Venting is that Michigan announced last week and then that they were bringing manufacturing back online this week so Monday. As Yuan is sitting there unhappy that his factory is an open open. Places in Michigan could come back online and he knows his competitors have already announced. Gm for Chrysler others that they're kicking up production GM and Ford. They're a scheduled to start assembly vehicles again next Monday and here in California. That's that's not the case so elon. Musk has taken it another step further. He also has threatened to move production out of California altogether. He's saying maybe to Texas. What kind of impact could his departure have on? The state would smell something that can happen. Overnight it's not as simple as picking up his tools and going to Texas and starting to make cars and a new factory I. It's much more complicated. And it's something that probably would take years to do but the effect would be dramatic. Tessa wouldn't be the first car company to pull out of California Toyota. Its headquarters for the US. North America used to be based on your La and they pulled out over the course of several years starting in two thousand fourteen and they went to Texas because in emerged part it's cheaper to operate their California had just gotten to expensive the factory that Tesla owns and California used to be a factory that was jointly operated by General Motors and Toyota in when GM wind bankruptcy left to Toyota and Toyota. Didn't want to didn't want to be there anymore. I wanted to go to someplace. Cheaper the state of California has in recent generation or so struggled to keep a car manufacturing and the Fremont factory the fact that Tesla was able to buy in two thousand ten and resume making vehicles there in twenty twelve was seen by the the region him by Government officials is a huge win and is something very important for the economy states. Local leaders across the country prize car factories. These are things they want. It means jobs. It means economic investment. It means all the and things that go with with that so it's not just the car factory it's the suppliers and the ecosystem that creates and brings into the community so this kind of threat in some ways was almost going nuclear to say that he was going to pull out of of the state now a lot of people are saying or asking was was just because he lost his temper. And and that sort of thing. Well we'll see. He has said on twitter that he's not messing around and he's taking this very seriously. Some of this of course is also. He's in essentially negotiating in public. He's trying to push put pressure on on the local government to allow him to open up. Yeah I mean it's it's a very public lobbying effort if you can call it that I think the interesting thing is. We'VE SEE BUSINESSES. Do this all the time time right to get tax incentives or or other deals but in this case it's public health interests that are at stake. How HAVE OFFICIALS IN ALAMEDA? County responded to this very open threat And is the pressure that he's putting on them seeming to impact their decisions to reopen at all whether the mayor of Fremont put out a statement saying that she supports Tesla and the Mayor of Palo Alto or the company's headquarters is located. Put out a statement over the weekend about their support for the company. It's a tough position for some of these elected officials They want to see the company. Back Open. They want to see businesses back. Open him yet. Some are also weighing the health ramifications. Several people have died in the county from Kovic Nineteen and they have reported More than two thousand cases of Govan Nineteen and so the concern among county leaders is that they're not sure if there's going to be a spike as they start to re phase in business activity and they'd like to see it play out a little bit longer and be prepared and the idea of ten thousand people coming into a facility is concerning and so they have been working with the company to make sure that the safety protocols in place and the Tesla has Publicized some of these. Things are what they're working on. And that's where the standoff here is. It's not when we're unique to test so there are lots of places and companies around the country who are frustrated and want to get back to the way things were and we've seen state by state by state Different ways of handling this. But there's probably no higher profile company in the US The take this kind of stand to to sue the local authorities and to Defy a local shutdown order.

The bus would rotate from Alameda to other cities like San Leandro union city Hayward and Fremont minder standing a city of Alameda may share this bus with some of the other smaller cities, which I think is a really great idea.

So things get a little interesting this past weekend. Of course, you know, the the calls come out that, you know, if the Democrats take the house, and or the Senate back that conservatives Republicans are going to get violent. Well. In in the Castro valley. Area. This is near Oakland sheriff deputies arrested thirty five year old Farzad for this is near this is this is actually at a, you know, this is the time of the year where you have festivals and fairs they arrested this guy for Saad Zely. This is in Castro valley after trying to attack Republican congressional candidate while. Making disparaging in profanity laced remarks about the president and the Republican party scanning Rudy Peters. It's running for the fifteenth congressional district seat, it's heavily democratic. So I'm not sure, you know. And I guess he's he's gonna take a shot at it. But according to Alameda Alameda County sheriff's office the press release they put out yesterday Zely approach Peter's quoted in an aggressive manner and made some disparaging remarks around three thirty three forty five in the afternoon. And then witnesses. According to a local CBS village said that his rant was profanity laced. And then according to the sheriff's office Fazillah pulled out a switchblade and tried to stab Peters. The knife didn't open and after a struggle with candidate Fizuli fled only to be arrested shortly thereafter on charges of felony assault criminal threats brandishing a weapon and possession of a switch blade knife. According to the Alameda County sheriff's office, deputies happened to be there at the festival as soon as the guy fled. They learned about the crime they pursued him and caught him in. He had the knife on his person Peters is a navy veteran running against an incumbent Eric swallow on they make America great again in America first platform, he was not seriously injured in all of this. And to swallows credit. He came out and said on Sunday my opponent was attacked at his campaign booth and Castro valley. I'm glad to hear Mr. Peters is. Okay. But it is never okay to use violence to settle political disagreements or any disagreement. Fortunately, the Alameda County sheriff's office arrested the suspect, but. Yeah. It's not the conservatives that get violent. The tea party's been around for how long now what eight nine years. Remember the time when the tea party went and destroyed.

Does not surprise me. Texas was there at number two Texas has its own Longhorn television networks said there's there's a revenue stream there that they've got over some of the other universities. But of course, Alabama Michigan Ohio state right in the mix too. Don't know if I don't know if Notre Dame was near the top of the list, but I'm sure they get good booster support. As well. The top national story at this time other than politics is going to be hurricane Florence and hurricane Florence continues to turn away out east along the east coast. Many folks are bracing for that. I've got the latest this is from North Carolina, and writes, Ville beach, this is Jonathan serrie and there's a mandatory evacuation, but he filed this report about four or five minutes ago. And I've got I've got this one in the hopper now, this is John communities evacuate during the approach of hurricane. Florence some local officials worry about the long term effects of the storm including power outages. Bill Blair is mayor of rights Phil beach town on a barrier island near Wilmington North Carolina worried about what's going to come after this past because near and Fran. For example. We were out for about two weeks. I mean, this is a much more powerful storm. Fran. Most residents are complying with a mandatory evacuation in effect as of Wednesday morning by evening town. Officials plan to begin shutting down the island's water system in order to protect it. During the storm in rightful beach, North Carolina, Jonathan serrie, Fox News earlier there we heard that mayor with the with with the same sound bite. But it it can't be stressed enough. That the reason for the evacuation is not for necessarily just in that moment. But and officials have said odds are at this point with this being a direct hit. Way it's gonna be tough for us to come get anybody. And and they have just worn people's like, we can't come get you. It's not it's not as if we have all this high ground where it's going to be easy to get you. If the I mean, they're looking in some spots of twenty five to thirty plus inches of rain. Plus you've got the storm surge, and you got to remember alone that coast that's low lying area that's going to get flooded inland for for quite some time. And now folks have had days not hours, but they've had days. In fact, local officials have have opened up to other side of the highway for contra flow to let all all the vehicles. Go in the same direction on both sides of the major highway to get people out of there. In fact, I believe I believe my wife, and I were actually we're going to be taking in some relatives that live out there.

But anyway this morning, I heard something about wants to lane gets up to forty five miles per hour is going to make it really really hard for the people who stay there to get out or for you to get to them. Yeah. Because I mean at that point. That's that's tropical storm winds. You know, once you get to thirty nine you've got tropical storms, but then you know, forty five tropical storm wins. You give seventy four you've got a hurricane. But I'm hearing perhaps between one thirty one forty the eye wall is is what it's going to reach the maximum at right near the eye of the hurricane. And it's you know in the I it's calm and serene. It's very calm there. It's that I wall where they look at the maximum sustained winds because that's where the winds are spinning the fastest. It's pretty it's interesting, Sherry because you get birds that migrate in hurricanes because they get stuck inside the eye of the hurricane where it's calm and serene, but they can't. Get out because it rip them apart trying to get through that I wall. So they have to go where the hurricane goes and migrate. And once they get on land than they've got a, you know, it's kind of race and find a find a shelter in a tree or under an overhang or somewhere safe where they can weather that storm because once it hits land it's going to be violent for awhile. But once it goes across land that storm starts to break up. But yeah, I mean, it's it's it's pretty incredible. And you get that storm surge of the water onto the land. But people have had their warning. I would not want to be there. Thank god. It's not here in Memphis. Yeah. And it looks like the impact of this will be maybe some cloud cover thrown away way mate, maybe to mainland. Hey, maybe. Well, we're going to be near ninety this weekend. I I wish I wish we'd get some cool air. This has been glorious as wake welcome. I kid to school in the morning, it's been glorious. But.

The Alameda County health care services agency will temporarily halt its efforts to shut down pop up restaurants while it figures out a strategy for permitting them says agency director choline Challah.
