Citing a detrimental impact on local business and a lack of scientific evidence, the Beverly Hills City Council unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday evening opposing the Los Angeles County order prohibiting outdoor dining.

The resolution demands a motion be placed on next Tuesday’s agenda of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to repeal the health order.

Council members also called on the county to focus on implementing restrictions based on data and where outbreaks of coronavirus occur, whether that be in a particular industry, sector or area, and not apply restrictions unilaterally throughout the county.

Council staff was also directed to explore the creation of a local city health department and the city attorney was tasked with exploring legal action against the county.

The county health order prohibits indoor and outdoor dining, allowing only for pick-up or delivery, until at least Dec. 20.
