ABC issued the following statement: “ABC prefers voluntary compliance, but it will take enforcement action against businesses that do not comply with state health orders. The department would rather gain compliance through conversation and in-person visits, however, when a business is not cooperative, then the department will issue a citation and forward the citation to a District Attorney, and move forward with administrative action against a licensee. Administrative action can result in placing the license on probation, a suspension, on up to revocation depending on the track record of the business. The section of law business owners and managers are being cited for is Section 8665 of the Government Code; failure to obey health orders as part of the Emergency Services Act.”
