Reopening Businesses

VP of Finance

Open the businesses that control flow and social distancing. We allowed large grocery stores to remain open with little or no enforcement while closing those smaller businesses that could easily control entrance and distance. I would love all public areas to be open but makes no sense to me to open public parks and/or beaches which do not generate any revenue with minimal labor force while restaurants and shops remain closed. Restaurants, gyms and small retail should easily be able to monitor and control entrance as well as adhere to the social distancing requirements. Notices should be required that you must wear gloves if you handle items in a retail shop unless purchasing those items. We need to make sure we continue to slow the spread and curve while not crippling the economy. It is a hard balancing act but start with those business that can control and contribute.
