You appear to be correct: https://abc7news.com/sf-nightclub-san-francisco-illegal-bay-area-coronavirus-update-california/6099812/

Prosecutions might come later. The city attorney prosecutes infractions and misdemeanors. Felonies are apparently the domain of the DA, a county elected position, or the state AG.

No. The LA City Attorney filed a lawsuit to force the club to shut down. You can find articles on this in Newsbreak and other LA area news sites.

Give Gov Newsom credit, he led by example. Next he will tell us that only those few conservatives still living in the state are the ones not following the science and are getting sick and dying.

I meant to say "the US gets what's coming to them" but the commenting interface doesn't allow corrections. Apologies.

Just from what I have seen too many Californians have simply decided to ignore the governor and public health officials. Gyms remain open where I live. So do restaurants even as the county I live in has the highest infection rate in the state. Go into any hardware or auto parts store and manly men are not wearing their "face diaper" and you are likely to get an acid-reflux look if you wear one (I do and don't give a rip what the bubbas think). You often have to ask shoppers to keep their distance from you (more dirty looks). You see groups of people stuffed into cars with no masks. Some big chain stores have the sign telling customers they must wear a mask and social distance pushed off to the side where it can't be seen. Elderly people with walkers and no mask. Even though store occupancy is supposedly limited to 25% of normal nobody is counting. Walmart and Home Depot both did early in the pandemic but not now. Nobody cares any more is what I am seeing. Even on our kids distance learning you hear adults who work for the school disparaging the rules, the governor and other public officials on line in front of all the kids. The US what's coming to them but it is hard to protect myself and my family from the masses of idiots around us.

No, prosecutors file charges, not lawsuits. Health authorities and licensing authorities are the ones who file suits against businesses.

prosecutors have filed a lawsuit against a downtown nightclub that continued to host late-night, underground raves in violation of Covid restrictions.

The daily COVID death toll in California is averaging 300, so a few thousand additional body bags will run out in 2 weeks.

that should be sobering

A lot of fools out there still thinking its a joke.

Hopefully dreadful news such as this will have a positive effect and wake people up to some reality.

2020 and Covid-19 need to end real quick. Enough of both already.

Newsom has failed. He has not taken it seriously as obvious from his little restaurant party a couple of weeks ago. His failure is costing lives.

Yet some people will continue to assert that covid19 is not dangerous enough to warrant risking the "rushed" vaccines.

Vaccines are a preventive measure not a cure.

Dont wait until people around you are dying left and right before deciding to get the vaccine.

By then it might be too late. Everyone else will be lining up for it and even when you do get it it will still take some time to build up protection

A 9/11 body count daily is predicted for the next 90 days. Trump has hundreds of thousands of deaths on his hands.

The CDC and various other research groups predict at least another 100,000 deaths by March. Yes, they factored in the vaccine.

"I don't want... to scare folks."

Maybe you should. Scare them right out of the bubble of denial they're in. Pics of body bags, maxed out ICUs, and refrigeration trucks.

And yeah, we are far in the tunnel. You think things are bad post-Thanksgiving? Wait for everyone to meet up for Christmas and New Years.
