...So why didn't the Sheriff enforce it?...

The Sheriff has been enforcing the law by visiting the factory and reporting back to the county.

Like most other counties, Alameda honors the Governor's way of enforcement by peer pressure rather than through the use of law enforcement.

‘Ambiguity’ of Newsom’s stay-at-home order takes Stanislaus County officials by surprise

Police taking soft approach to COVID-19 shelter enforcement

Those who think CA is a fascist state were disappointed because they don't see any National Guards arresting violators. And in this case, they would be also disappointed waiting for the Sheriff to arrest Elon Musk because they are not educated with the Governor's way of enforcement: peer pressure.

The county conducts the reopening process in a civilized manner throughout the negotiation.

Tesla sabotaged the process by openly exhibiting its lawlessness action in front of the public.

So Tesla blatantly started the factory up and LE took no action to shut Tesla down. What type of message does this send? If you are a large enough company you can just ignore the order? Peer pressure from who?

So why didn't the Sheriff enforce it? At anytime the Fremont PD or the Alameda County Sheriff Department could have gone to the factory and enforced the order. However they didn't. Which could means the county has realized the quarantine laws could be on shaky legal grounds constitutionally and they don't want a judge ruling they are invalid.

How do you know that?

"...the county told Tesla earlier in the day to stop manufacturing at its Fremont plant, the strongest step local government has taken to check the electric car maker’s defiance of health orders."

The message is: In a civilized world, a letter of reprimand is enough.

According to Scott Hagerty (Al Co Supervisor) they were already negotiating with Tesla on reopening when Elon when on his twitter triad. I think this was a bit of a negotiating ploy plus a way for Elon to dangle more shiny objects in front of states to get concessions for the next Gigafactory. My thought is whoever gets the CyberTruck factory is going to have pay a price in money, permits, and perhaps changes to their laws to allow direct vehicle sales.

I wonder what happens to the lawsuit now. Does Alameda now pay Tesla's legal fees?

Lawsuit is challenging Alameda Counties authority to shut down Tesla. I'm not a lawyer, but it does not look good for Alameda.

I'm glad that Tesla is ramping back up. Just like everyone, I hope everyone is really good with their physical distance, hand washing and wearings masks.
