SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Mayor Kevin Faulconer responded Friday after Governor Gavin Newsom issued new stay-at-home orders for the region.

Faulconer said in a statement on Twitter that local businesses aren’t being treated fairly under the new guidance.

“Restaurants made good faith efforts to comply with COVID rules. Now the rules are changing once again,” Faulconer said.

“If the Governor shuts restaurants down, it’s only right the state compensates them for the costs incurred moving outdoors,” he continued.


The statement comes after Newsom said Thursday he was pulling the “emergency brake” to stop the spread of coronavirus.

The new orders shut down businesses such as hair salons and barbershops, zoos, movie theaters, wineries and breweries, and outdoor playgrounds, among other sectors.
