Perhaps a curfew on Trump's mouth and fingers would be more effective in keeping the peace.

I understand a curfew in retail areas. But the County has let its emergency powers go to its head. The present so-called “emergency” and curfew is based on something they think might happen somewhere in some retail locations in our 744 square mile county.

Therefor 700,000 of us can’t be trusted outside after dark.

That is not enough justification to trample the personal freedom of every single resident.

If they are going to issue order this drastic they should be based on actual negative events and they should apply only to the immediate area around the event. They have no reason to be applying a curfew to purely residential ares like, for example, Woodside or La Honda or Half Moon Bay or Pacifica.

County Government: get a grip.
