I will only briefly say that if this is passed next week, we have few options if the cases spike drastically, we will be stuck with our bad decision. I still think we should extend until May 15. I also have seen several restaurants and bars already operating like this passed on Friday. One downtown bar has been operating all thru this. I saw several cars at their establishment last night. I also saw people dining on the patio at a restaurant downtown over lunch with a server waiting on them.
What I found interesting about the council discussion is everyone brought up business owners and patrons rights, but no one brought up the rights of workers. If you were on unemployment right now (and actually making more money) would you want to risk getting Covid while making less money? Hell NO! Funny how no one brought this up in the meeting except Starr. If these businesses have taken out PPP loans (grants) and their employees are on unemployment, what is the mad rush to reopen?
