LOS ANGELES, Kalifornia (PNN) - December 11, 2020 - Civil rights activist Peggy Hall uses Kalifornia as the model, but provides points to research the laws in your state.

1. In Kalifornia, business owners themselves, not the governor, have shut down their businesses. Unless a sheriff padlocks the entrance, the power to stay open lies with business owners. Business owners have closed their doors out of fear of losing their licenses.

2. A business may lose its license only if it violates a law or a state regulation. However, there is no law that requires citizens to wear a mask either in public or in business establishments, nor is there a regulation to require employees or patrons of those establishments to wear a mask. All that exists is an unconstitutional edict from the governor, who has no authority over any of these matters.

3. A state regulation does exist that prohibits public businesses from discriminating against those who do not wear a mask.

4. Employers are not law enforcement agents and have no authority to act as such.

5. Employers are not medical professionals and have no authority to administer a medical examination or give medical advice, including advice to wear a mask.

6. If a public business refuses entry into its facility for not wearing a mask for health reasons, they are in violation of the Kalifornia constitution, which protects free movement against false imprisonment.

7. No store may comply with a policy that violates law or the Kalifornia constitution.

8. There is no state regulation or law requiring businesses to operate outdoors, to use plexiglass barriers, or to limit capacity or operating hours for health reasons.

Laws are created by legislative bodies such as Congress or state legislatures. Governors and mayors cannot enact laws. Their executive orders are binding only on government employees and contractors under their jurisdiction. A business can lose its license only if it violates a regulation that applies to their business. There are no regulations requiring masks, temperature readings, testing, or accepting vaccines. Failure to do these things cannot be the basis for losing a license. State and county health departments do not want these cases to go to administrative court because they know that cases where no regulations have been violated must be dismissed.
