The Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County (RPSLOC) recently adopted a resolution calling for Governor Gavin Newsom to end the statewide lock down immediately.

The Governor has ordered individuals in California to quarantine themselves in their homes ordered schools closed and arbitrarily deemed millions of workers and businesses as “non-essential.” The original objective of “bending the curve” to avoid an overwhelming of our hospital systems has been achieved, and there is now plenty of hospital capacity for anyone who may need it.

The lock down is causing untold Californians of all ages serious mental harm and tragic increases in suicides, domestic abuse, and substance abuse, with the serious risk of life-long trauma; and creating tremendous financial damage to untold individuals, families, and businesses so as to not only risk wiping out many of them, but also severely impacting state revenues, as well as other government entities’ revenues.

The RPSLOC believes the elected county government officials responsible to voters, and who are consulting with healthcare professionals, businesses and workers, are best equipped to decide what health protocols and precautions are appropriate for their particular regional circumstances, rather than a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach.  

Governor Newsom, end the statewide lock down now!
