REDDING, Calif. – Shasta County Supervisors spent an entire day hearing from community members about whether they should find a workaround to keep businesses open, against the state order.

People on both sides of the issues attended the special meeting held by the Shasta supervisors.

At the hours-long meeting, dozens of people pleaded to the supervisors to reject Governor Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan, while others urged the board to follow the state’s guidelines.

“The pressure being put on you by our tyrannical governor,” said one public speaker against the reopening guidelines. “Do not let us fall into the purple tier over a virus that most of would not even know existed.”

“This is a time to keep egos aside and value the careers scientists, who are giving us the steps to help keep our community safe,” said another public speaker for following the guidelines.

One by one each person spoke their three minutes.

“What I’m going to ask of you is to be delightful difficult,” urged another public speaker.

“So that guy who sits in that place where I want to be, who makes these decisions for all of us, you make his life unsettled.”

All five supervisors listened. Outside the Board Chambers, more people also waiting to speak. Some speakers feeling frustrated with the new restrictions.

“Going into purple tier is going to destroy businesses even more than they are now,” said Melissa Magana.

While others concerned, about the consequences of not following the state's plan.

“I think if we followed all the protocols in the first place,” said David Robbins. “We would've already been reopened right now and we would've done it the right way.”

The Board of Supervisors also listened to over 100 voicemails worth of public comment.
