County of San Diego supervisors Greg Cox and Nathan Fletcher both reiterated that in-person dining is still not allowed due to the threat of coronavirus pandemic, said a CBS8 report.
Cox said that the plan has been sent to Governor Gavin Newsom and the county is awaiting approval.
“So please don’t start lining up at your favorite restaurant or shop at stores,” Cox said. “As soon as we have the go-ahead, we certainly will let you know.”
Just this Tuesday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to approve the county’s plan for an accelerated reopening of San Diego County.
In a separate vote of 4-1, the board passed another item for San Diego to become a pilot program to open some Stage 3 businesses.
According to reports, Fletcher was the one-party who voted against the Stage 3 plan.
If San Diego County is cleared to accelerate into Stage 2 in-person dining and in-person retail shopping with social distancing will be allowed to occur.
Meanwhile, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer released a revised Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposal that prioritizes federal CARES Act stimulus funds for small businesses, homeless services, and childcare for frontline workers, said a CBS8 report.
The proposal roughly amounted to $13 million for small business relief.
