Sacramento CA – The city plans on reopening to the public amid a sharp spike in COVID-19 cases.
San Jose is confirming their plan to reopen. Now, it plans to reopen utilizing strict policies to ensure the safety of customers and the public. For many, this means their small business will open back up. For others, the threat of contracting the virus continues to loom heavily.
Many citizens, on the other hand, feel a sense of relief. Many have been stuck at home with little-to-nothing to do for months. It’s a typical case of Cabin Fever. They feel as though this is a good idea as long as people follow the right safety procedures.
Reopening Will Need Cooperation From The Public
In other areas, many people find it unnecessary to wear a mask. In Orange County – death threats are filling the town council to protest the requirement of masks. These have fallen short as science dictates the obvious.
According to Newsom:
“Simply put, we are seeing too many people without covering – putting at risk the real progress we have made in fighting the disease. California’s strategy to restart the economy and get people back to work will only be successful if people act safely and follow health recommendations. That means wearing a face covering, washing your hands and practicing physical distancing,”
He also adds:
“Science shows that face coverings and masks work. They are critical to keeping those who are around you safe, keeping businesses open and restarting our economy.”
In order for the reopening process to be successful, both customers and businesses must wear masks when entering or leaving. Since the economy is starting to bounce back, many people are finding themselves walking about shopping malls with few issues.
Unfortunately, this comes at a time when cases are rising fast. The US has yet to drastically flatten the curve and warns of a second wave of COVID-19.
