County

Stonewall Recommendation

Recommends that restaurants be allowed to submit plans that would enable them to operate as wholesale grocers, as long as social distancing guidelines are met; this was in response to County Health zealously shutting down restaurants who had converted to grocers in order to sell food (such as fresh fruit, etc.) to customers, even telling the restaurants they could not apply for a grocery license. As of April 28, 2020, restaurants had been able to reopen as grocers, saving jobs and small businesses, due to a pressure campaign from Stonewall Democratic Club and others.
