Congressman Doug LaMalfa on Tuesday visited a downtown Grass Valley restaurant still operating indoors — a day after the governor ordered a halt to indoor dining — and addressed a group of protesters who rallied outside the Eric Rood Administrative Center earlier that morning.

According to LaMalfa, his message was to encourage Gov. Gavin Newsom to take a more locally driven tact.

Congressman Doug LaMalfa visits Old Town Cafe in Grass Valley to meet with business owners and community members upset with the most recent order from Governor Gavin Newsom saying all bars and dine in establishments must discontinue serving indoors.
