Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Monday announced the temporary suspension of all farmer's markets in the city in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus one day after Katherine Schwarzenegger took to social media to voice criticism over the apparent lack of social distancing at a market in Brentwood, reports TMZ.  

"Now, this is a little different than the other [closures] because food is essential, and I don't want the closing of farmers markets to have even bigger crowds at our grocery stores," Garcetti said during his nightly update on the city's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines social distancing as maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet from others and staying out of crowded places.

Schwarzenegger, the daughter of former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, on Sunday tweeted: "The farmers markets in Brentwood still being open seems like a huge issue when it comes to social gatherings."

Others also tweeted and tagged Garcetti in their posts.

"Mr. Mayor, I voted for you and I've supported you and your administration since day one," Jerry Avanaim said. "The people of Brentwood think their privilege is immune to the virus and the stay at home order. These kind of gatherings should be banned and subject to arrest. Please act swiftly."
