Los Angeles residents protested the latest round of lockdown measures at the home of L.A. County Department of Health Director Barbara Ferrer.

According to reports, about two dozen people gathered in front of Ferrer’s home on Friday. This marked the second time in a week demonstrators have shown up at her house.

Protesters said they’re against the new restrictions, which prohibit private and public gatherings in addition to restricting dining and shopping.

Earlier this week, Ferrer addressed opposition to the new measures. She said she understands and respects people’s right to peacefully protest.

“I’m aware that for some people these decisions neither feel like they’re appropriate,” the L.A. County director of health stated. “And for other people, they feel like I may need to better understand the implications.”

The newest lockdown order took effect Monday. It lasts through December 20.

Many store owners said their businesses won’t survive another lockdown, especially during the busy holiday season.
