A California emergency management official enjoyed a day with family at a beach despite strict a local shelter-in-place order that has closed all parks, beaches and open spaces. Chris Godley, director of Emergency Management and leader of the Sonoma County’s Emergency Operation Center, apologized for taking the Saturday trip with his family to an unnamed beach on the Sonoma County coast. Photos were posted on the family’s Facebook.

‘I own this,’ Godley said to the Press Democrat. ‘It was a day off for my family. Any reasoning or justification is going to sound thin.’

The article goes on to state the following:


Lynda Hopkins, the Sonoma County Supervisor, was dismayed by Godley’s trip to the beach: ‘I’m extremely disappointed. In county government, we need to lead by example. We can’t possibly expect the community to hold themselves accountable if we don’t hold ourselves accountable as well.’

Supervisor David Rabbitt defended Godley Sunday, advocating that few work as hard as him. He asked for people to be more lax with people in Godley’s line of work during this time: ‘If this was the doctor, in the midst of a battle for six days, and had one day off with family, would it be a sin? Would that be a story? Or is it only a story for Chris Godley who works for the county? I want my top people who are responding to this crisis to be of sound mind, body and health,’ he continued. ‘And if that means going to the coast to feel better, I’m all for it.’
