Elon Musk the boss of Tesla has threatened to move the company’s HQ out of California after he was prevented from opening his factory.

Musk is taking legal action against Alameda County after officials blocked the electric vehicle car factory from opening.

He wrote on Twitter, “Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected & ignorant “Interim Health Officer” of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”

In a second tweet, Musk angrily tweeted, “Frankly, this is the final straw.

“Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately.”

On Friday Tesla was told they do not meet conditions required for the business to reopen, Alameda County Public Health Department said.

They said, “The Bay Area started with a higher disease burden than the rest of the state, which may mean tighter restrictions than the rest of the state for some time.

“Restoring all daily activities too soon risks a rapid spike in cases and would jeopardise the relative stability we’ve seen in our health and hospital systems.”

Musk has criticised California officials and said the stay at home order poses a “serious risk” to his business.
