A weekend of peaceful protests went down this weekend in La Mesa, Coronado, and PB, and Downtown San Diego. In La Mesa, about 150 motorcyclists participated in a unity ride from Oak Park to police headquarters yesterday. The La Mesa Police department tweeted that the event was peaceful and there were about 200 protesters. In Coronado, about 100 people showed up at Spreckles Park for a “Baby’s First Black Lives Matter Protest” that had activism story time, music, dancing and voices of black motherhood. In PB, a walk for Equality went down at the Crystal Pier March, and the downtown one started at the San Diego Zoo and went to the Police Headquarters downtown.
The County supervisor announced that nail salons, massage parlors, and tattoo shops can reopen pending approval from health officials starting this Friday. Businesses are required to complete a safe reopening plan and follow public health guidelines. On Friday gyms, hotels, and bars, were allowed to reopen. And right when bars opened, people headed downtown and to the beach areas. Some pics came out showing crowds of people outside the bars not wearing masks. Click HERE for more info!
San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher responded saying, “I get I’ve been the lone vote against accelerated re-openings and think it’s a mistake to have high intensity/long duration indoor activities open now (bars, movie theaters, church’s) but please, please, please SD—let’s try and make it work!“
Todd Gloria tweeted this, “We must do better San Diego. Folks need to wear face coverings. The City should temporarily close Fifth Avenue to cars to allow pedestrians to social distance
