California Gov. Gavin Newsom has been among the most strict during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has issued closings and stay-at-home orders.

But his recent health order was dealt a setback when a judge ruled that two San Diego strip clubs could remain open and reach their own determinations when it comes to ensuring a safe environment for customers and dancers during COVID.

The judge also directed San Diego County to allow businesses with restaurant services to operate safely and responsibly, according to supervisor Jim Desmond.

According to reports, Pacers International Showgirls and Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club operated for five weeks under their own safety measures during the pandemic. They kept strippers 15 feet from tables, allowed no more than one stripper per stage and required strippers and other employees to wear masks.
