If a business refuses to comply with the County’s Shelter at Home Order, it may face a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, or up to six months in jail, or both. If the business in question is within one of the seven incorporated cities, the County will refer the complaint to the respective city. The cities and County are coordinating compliance to maximize resources among the related public agencies.
