SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Protesters rallied in the streets across the country in response to George Floyd’s death.
Floyd died while Minneapolis police were detaining him on May 25.
Hundreds and thousands of people rallied and protested along the Central Coast including in Oxnard, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Lompoc and San Luis Obispo.
While many wore face coverings, few kept their physical distance.
Now, with California in Phase Two of reopening and some parts already into Phase Three, there’s concern of a setback in containing COVID-19’s spread.
Last week Santa Barbara County District 2 Supervisor Gregg Hart said Santa Barbara County is not using all of their allotted COVID-19 tests. And he is encouraging anyone who thinks they might have been exposed to get tested.
