SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. - San Luis Obispo District Attorney District Attorney Dan Dow shares how he will handle the COVID-19 shutdown order.

This comes after being asked by the San Luis Obispo Tribune about whether he would prosecute Kennedy Club Fitness for alleged violations of the latest stay-at-home orders.

Dow released a statement, saying in part, "If the City is truly interested in ensuring compliance by Kennedy Club Fitness or any other business for violating coronavirus restrictions, they have ample effective methods to do so administratively without asking my office to punish the business as a criminal."

Dow went on to say that "there is no sense in labeling a business owner or a business as a criminal for choosing to keep their business open in a manner that adequately protects their customers."
