Santa Clara County blames COVID-19 for not fulfilling public records requests
Santa Clara County is refusing to release records related to COVID-19 because “it is not in the public interest” for county employees to divert their time from the pandemic to collect and review public documents. (So they’re blaming the Jinn for them not releasing information relating to the Jinn. Talk about double-speak. This is straight out of 1984.)
Although Gov. Gavin Newsom loosened some of the state’s open meeting laws due to the pandemic, he has not suspended the public records act or modified any of its requirements.
This means counties and cities still have to follow the state law, regardless of the pandemic.
Government agencies can use COVID-19 to delay the release of public records, experts say…
California keeps key virus data out of public sight

Salons and barbershops in the Greater Sacramento Region can open today after meeting the ICU capacity criteria for exiting the Regional Stay At Home Order. This includes the following counties: Alpine, Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba. These counties will move back into the color-coded, tiered system “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” which allows salons and barbershops to operate indoors, with restrictions, in all tiers.
(Please note that the Bay Area is NOT included. Salons remain CLOSED to servicing customers both indoors and outdoors INDEFINITELY.)
