Orange County has seen protesting over the past few weeks in support of opening businesses and resuming life. As impatient as county residents may be, there are some challenges Orange County has to face outside the county before opening up.

Currently there is a Western Pact with California and four other Western states.
The Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce held a live stream on Facebook today discussing city efforts to help local businesses during the covid-19 pandemic. ake Forest Council Member Dwight Robinson said the Lake Forest Economic Development team has been reaching out to businesses and is available for help and questions.
Thursday night Governor Newsom ordered the state of California to stay at home in an attempt to slow the spread of covid-19.
