The flu virus killed more people than COVID. Doesn’t it seem strange that we don’t use the same quarantine for the flu virus? Or is there another agenda afoot.

Funny that the looters came by the hundreds and they were applauded, welcomed even, by the governor but us small business owners were shamed and shit down. What are we doing? More importantly, what are our elected officials and UNELECTED officials doing?? The good citizens of this town need to know that WE are the hand that feeds these officials. Why are we obeying? ALL SMALL BUSINESSES NEED TO RALLY TOGETHER AND OPEN OUR STORES!! Covid has proven its is NOT a death sentence by ANY stretch.

Maybe this time around the police will see that the officials are NOT on their side. We the people are the ones who pay their paychecks and the police need to support us back instead of shutting us down. California is already cutting police pay by
10% because all the revenue streams have shut down by closing small businesses. With all the talk of defunding the police department there will be no one hiring when all the businesses are out of business.

Close the streets and we will come every evening to support our small businesses.

Who is the Town Council kidding? Quite a few of these downtown establishments have been in violation of this order and our police department looks the other way. Perhaps they are not only getting money from our taxes, schools...but some under the table from places in little downtown?

The Town is a little slow if this is a new thought.
Of course close down some downtown side streets near restaurants. Also possibly sections of some parking lots near downtown restaurants. Perhaps provide shuttles from more remote parking areas.
Make it work.

Doesn’t it make more sense to close all of Hartz Avenue and make it a pedestrian walking street, instead of random side streets?

Hurry, Churches can have services!

Oh, wait...there can no more than 12 people in the Service!
Of course you are allowed 100 outside.
What an insult. 12 people...Really?
The preacher, the band and the ushers would account for the 12 where I attend.
No consideration for social distancing and size of the room.
Can you explain their logic...please
