LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Protesters — several not wearing face coverings — were demanding to “Open L.A.” in a demonstration on Sunday evening outside the home of Los Angeles County Health Director Barbara Ferrer.
The protest comes just one day before L.A. County will enact another Safer-At-Home order in response to the alarming increase in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
There was also a protest held in Sherman Oaks, where attendees were speaking out against restaurant closures outside Casa Vega restaurant. Demonstrators held signs that read, “Eat Out, Sit-In,” and shared a meal on the corner of Fulton and Ventura Avenue.
