|Dear valued businesses:
All of California is doing a great job battling Covid. This is not true of a lot of the rest of the country. The New York Times today ran some startling graphics – take a look at these charts.
On the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy chart, Santa Clara County has progressed from Purple (Widespread) to Red (Substantial) and now to Orange (Moderate), meaning our restaurants can serve indoors, and our churches and assembly areas like the Glass House and Blanco on San Pedro Street can host up to 100 people, or 25% capacity, whichever is lower.
Incidentally, Nomikai was first to announce that by achieving the Orange Tier, it would reopen today on South First Street, across from the Al Fresco Post Street. Let us know (email email@example.com) if you are reopening and Jessica will make sure to update our social media and webpage, which has doubled its use by the public in the past month.
Hopefully, over the next few months of sticking to the guidelines, keeping our masks on, appropriately setting tables 10 feet away from the next -- making sure we don’t go backward -- we can go forward to the first tier.
There is one more level – Yellow (Minimal), defined as one or less average new cases per day per 100,000 people. That is our next goal.
