Elon Musk still isn't a fan of lockdown measures. Now the Tesla CEO is threatening to sue San Francisco’s Alameda County and move the company out of California over strict shelter-in-place rules.

Musk went on yet another Twitter rant yesterday to share with his followers how absolutely fed up he is over the local lockdown orders which prohibit his Tesla facility from opening up again and resuming vehicle production. “Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected and ignorant ‘interim health officer’ of Alameda is acting contrary to the governor, the president, our constitutional freedoms and just plain common sense.”

Musk went on to insinuate that he would be moving the facility out of state in protest. “Frankly, this is the last straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing at all, it will be dependent on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in California.”

While other counties have loosened lockdown measures, Alameda County extended its shelter-in-place rules through May 31. However, Musk doesn't seem to grasp the importance of such safety precautions during a global pandemic, instead slamming Alameda County as “irrational” and “detached from reality.”
