In somewhat of a surprise move Governor Gavin Newsom lifted the Stay At Home Order in several areas including Orange County. The change means lots of different things but one change is restaurants are now allowed to reopen their outside dining areas again.

Since December 6th all outside dining has been disallowed but with the change restaurants can now get their heaters, tents, chairs and tables back out to offer outside dining again. Restaurants are struggling under COVID and, a lot have already closed permanently this won’t help them all survive but it should be a boost for many restaurants.

Hopefully things slowly improve and we don’t have to visit closing down outdoor dining again which i think was a mistake in the first place by the Governor.

Inside dining hasn’t been allowed in Orange County since June of last year and, i cannot see that being allowed anytime soon.
