Motion for stricter COVID-19 restrictions on dining in Carlsbad failed to move forward

CARLSBAD (KUSI) – Carlsbad city leaders decided if restaurants opposing the state’s public health order should face additional fines than those already imposed by the health order.

In a special meeting Tuesday, the Carlsbad City Council considered whether or not to put in place an administrative citation process that would allow the city to hand down fines for breaking the public health order.

The vote to enforce extra restrictions failed. Councilmember Cori Schumacher made the motion but didn’t get a second and councilmembers never even voted on it.

KUSI’s Hunter Sowards was live from Carlsbad where residents held a peaceful protest in opposition to the proposed enforcement efforts.
