Napa restaurant defying shelter-in-place reportedly threatened with restraining order

Napa restaurant Fume Bistro reopened for dine-in service this week, despite the county's shelter-in-place order. Owner Terry Letson put up a "Come On In" sign, moved tables six feet apart, started taking staff temperature checks, and began serving customers. Masks are not required for employees or customers.

On Tuesday, Napa County inspectors reportedly stopped by. When Letson told them he refused to stop serving patrons inside, they told him they would return with a restraining order as early as Wednesday, according to KTVU.

He said that takeout-only was not enough to sustain the business, and that the 18-year-old restaurant was struggling 46 days into the order.

"It's not a rash decision, we've been looking at it for a week or so," Letson told KTVU. "We need to be feeding people, to make ends meet."
