Businesses that don’t adhere to COVID-19 safety rules, like spacing tables the appropriate distance, could have their operating permit revoked under a motion approved today by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Scott Steepleton/Malibu Surfside News

Acknowledging a lack of resources and, most important, time to haggle with business owners who put the public at risk by violating COVID-19 health and safety orders, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today gave inspectors the power to revoke permits from recalcitrant owners.

This as the county Department of Public Health reported a single-day record of 4,015 new positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the county total to 120,539 confirmed cases, including 57 in Malibu.

Officials reported 3,579 deaths countywide as of late Monday.
