Several more California sheriffs have joined Orange County’s sheriff in bucking Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s latest lockdown order and refusing to actively enforce new mandates.

The sheriffs of Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties put out statements over social media on Thursday and Friday following a statement from Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes pushing back against Newsom’s restrictions. Newsom announced the lockdown on Thursday and it went into effect on Saturday night.


On Friday morning, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said in a statement, “In short, we will not be actively enforcing the curfew order. However, we will continue to respond to public safety concerns and provide law enforcement services wherever they are needed. We ask that everyone do their part to avoid situations that may contribute to the spread of COVID19.”

San Bernardino Sheriff John McMahon joined the others later on Friday in refusing to send officers to respond to violations of Newsom’s lockdown order.
