I think that the ban on outdoor dining is absolute nonsense and does not make sense. There is also no scientific evidence that outdoor dining leads to spread of COVID-19. It is also hurting the economy a lot because in-person dining in restaurants is the main backbone of our economy. Also, food tastes much fresher if eaten in a restaurant instead of at home. I also feel that this ban on outdoor dining is creating misery in diners (especially foodies like me) because most people prefer to dine at restaurants instead of ordering takeout or delivery. I think that the current governments and health officials in California are being tyrannical and is unnecessarily abusing their power. Restore in-person outdoor dining immediately. Use other means to curb the spread of Coronavirus, such as enforcing mask-wearing, limiting social gatherings, and shutting down bars.
