@BROKEROB1 ... I did attempt to educate myself on the situation. Checking news reports and newspaper articles on Monday about the opening. I do not know Themi personally. I was supposing that someone with his influence and real estate holdings locally would not, especially if consulting his attorney, just make a snap decision to open without first getting a feeler out to the DA's office to check on possible enforcement or fines. I will not make that supposition again. You are correct, I should not speak on what I do not know.
I am surprised to see that other diners or full service restaurants have not followed suit and opened as well. Once it's seen that there is no enforcement, can't anyone open any business?
We closed for 2 weeks, then opened following the guidelines and making ~40% of normal revenue. Many of my staff are on full or partial unemployment as well. Our store looks like it's in a 3rd world country right now, tables pushed aside, chairs stacked up, cold cases empty and unplugged, limited staff, limited hours and limited menu. It's not great by any stretch and I'm really not sure if we will survive long term.
I can fully respect every person's frustration and stress if they are not able to earn a living and provide for themselves and families. I know that stress and frustration is amplified greatly if you are the business owner. I just thought following the rules on this was important, but that is just MY opinion and I am not a healthcare professional nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night.
I wish all of us to get through this as quickly and safely as possible.
