Thank you for your part in beach closure this weekend to control the spread of the Corona Virus. I very much appreciate your willingness to do what is right for the health and wellness of the people of Orange County, even if it is not popular. Thank you for your courage in doing what is right in the face of adversity.

This is BS.

I applaud politicians who do what’s prudent even if it’s going to make some loud people mad.

Thank you for doing the hard decision to protect the public despite the vocal anti mask crowd.

Unless you are carrying a picket sign.

ZERO confidence here on OC Health department. Mistaking antibody tests and throwing them in a positive case count is inexcusable. Dr. Chau staying he is “learning?” Come on!The OC BOS is doing a disservice to the county!

I'd rather stay home and be grateful for my health...

What's important here, is with so many people out of work, and no where to go, with all kinds of public venues closed, people are going to the beach to cool off during this summer's heat, because it's free entertainment. Deliberately blocking beach access to commoners with nothing left to lose may lead to deep resentment and social unrest, with potential rioting and looting, by normally placid, law abiding inland residents, just as you saw in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, along with malls and stores burned and destroyed all across the country last month, as the reaction to forced lockdowns. South Orange County was mostly spared. Just push people a little harder though, it won't take much, and you'll bring it down on yourselves easily. Everyone is at their breaking point now. It's not a small request to offer a tiny gesture, like public beach access. Supervisor Lisa Bartlett simply can't believe it could ever happen here, and lives in a bubble.

What 4th of July fireworks? It was shut down this year by cowards. But, BLM protests got a green light no problem.

God help us.

These numbers suggest OC ICU bed use is double the state average

Leave our beaches alone. KEEP THE BEACHES OPEN

Prove it! Where’s the proof....

Our local leaders need to be throwing a fit. This lockdown is not based on data and is not legal under California law, which requires "extreme peril" or the threat of overwhelmed resources.

Please close the beaches. All of the asymptomatic tourists will be here.

The uptick in hospitalizations are the chronically ill and non-emergency cases, turned emergency situations and finally having to come and take care of themselves.

Thank you for caring for our health. Judging from the comments its an uphill battle to get people to get it. But every doctor I've spoken to is terrified of this virus.

23,000 small businesses will close in 2020.

Covid numbers have been manipulated. So called leaders should be impeached, if that’s possible.

On July 1, 2020, Governor Newsom closed California wineries and tasting rooms, to supposedly prevent the spread of Covid-19, but has kept his own winery in Napa open? Gov. Newsom's winery and tasting room in Napa Valley remained open along with Madera Co. wineries which were also exempt. Gov. Newsom owns stock in PlumpJack Group, which includes a winery in Napa Valley's Oakville. That winery is still open for tastings. Governor Newsome reported a $680,000 profit on his 2018 tax return for his winery, while shutting all Orange County businesses. Republican OC Supervisor Lisa Bartlett voiced no objection and failed to stand up for Orange County business. Why the double standard hypocrisy? kmph.com/news/local/central-valley-wineries-ordered-to-close-but-governors-winery-remains-open

Democrat Governor Newsom shut down all the wineries across the state, including Orange County, to prevent the spread of Covid-19. So good so far, except he left out Napa County, where he has his own winery that's still open. On his 2018 tax return he made $680,000 profit from his winery, so he's still in business, while Orange County is shut down. Democrat Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi's Napa winery is still open too. Her winery is so profitable for her family, that it makes her the 4th richest person in the state, so why doesn't Republican OC Supervisor Lisa Bartlett stand up for Orange County businesses? Why allow this double standard hypocrisy? www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-richest-nancy-pelosi-vineyard-story.html

Governor Newsom's Napa winery, that was boasting on Instagram they'd be open for 4th of July weekend, just deleted their post after public outrage. Question why OC Supervisor Lisa Bartlett closed down OC businesses without protest, while Gov Newsom kept his own winery and tasting room open for July 4th weekend? www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/07/newsoms-winery-deletes-instagram-post-bragging-open-4th-july-wee...

Newsom's Napa Winery update - agrees to close for 4th of July weekend. Newsom's other two California wineries and tasting rooms remain open. Napa winery open again on Monday, July 6. Meanwhile all OC wineries and tasting rooms will remain shut by Gov.'s orders. Nancy Pelosi's Napa winery & tasting room remains open for 4th of July business. Napa and Madera county wineries were never shuttered. That's where Gov. Newsom owns 3 wineries and tasting rooms, along with his Aunt Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Speaker of the House, Napa winery and tasting room still open for business.

4th of July beaches. Beaches. Save lives. Please. Do we really need to follow Arizona before the Supervisors stop dancing with death?

Fantastic! Hey, why we’re at it, Lisa give a shout out for Safety Fascial Masks.

Positivity percentage up every day. Supervisors taking no action every day.

You might want to convince the sheriff to enforce the rules before this spins too far out of control to be recovered.

Gets worse every day. Bars need to close. Dining indoors at restaurants should be restricted. Gyms should be closed. Stricter regs on other inside activities.

It’s a lot easier to wear a mask than a ventilator...

Orange County’s COVID-19 trend is worsening. For the name of God, get with the program and swallow your pride. Please, publicly endorse the mandated use of Safety Fascial Masks, avoidance of crowds in indoor spaces, and the use of social distancing.

Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, please voice your support of the Governor's mask order. Like make a special announcement, proclamation or something!

County of Orange, CaliforniaThe OC Treasurer wants you to know that a large-scale coronavirus scam has erupted where imposters are filing claims for unemployment benefits using names of people who have not filed claims. Victims learn about the fraud when they get a notice from their state unemployment benefits office or employer about their supposed application for benefits. www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2020/06/scammer-getting-unemployment-benefits-your-name?utm_source=govd... ...
