2. I was and still am a regular Restaurant Patron...

And I am going to say something that you will not like. I have not been in a restaurant to sit and eat since Feb when this all started in WA state. I will not go into a restaurant again until we know that vaccines are working and things are much safer. Yes it sucks big time with what is happening to your business. But there is a big difference between sitting inside for an hour with your mouth exposed at times, sitting close to people or running into home depot for something you need to repair a broken toilet.

I understand why it feels unfair. I get it. Frankly, I don't think it's safe to eat indoors with others. Last night I heard one of the more prominent TV epidemiologists say that if you are over 55 you shouldn't even go in the grocery store and if you must you should wear a shield as well as a mask.

I know you know that what is happening to our medical providers is deadly serious. We need to protect them. It is catastrophic what is happening all over. But we here in WA have been doing so much better than many states.

What I think is disgusting is the McConnell/GOP Senate refusing to get stimulus money into businesses like yours. Many of us need that money to come in directly to us so we can survive.

It sucks what is happening to your industry. It sucks that things are probably not going to go back to normal in the near future. But someone running into Ross for underwear or Home Depot for a toilet plunger is not what is ruining your industry.
