Restaurants celebrated yesterday as the city extended the outdoor business ordinance through next summer!
The San Diego City council unanimously approved the extension which means restaurants can now operate outdoors through July 13, 2022. City leaders hope this will help restaurants make up money lost over the last year. But they do say that the issue is still hiring staff to meet increased demand.
Target plans to open a store in a soon-to-be-built downtown San Diego high-rise building in the next couple of years.
The store will be located in a 22 story building that will be right between downtown and East Village. They hope for it to be done by 2023.
San Diego will stay in the orange tier however we are getting better.
Yesterday there were 108 new Covid cases. Our adjusted case rate fell to 3.4 per 100,000 from a 3.7 last week. This places us firmly in the orange tier.
The county’s positivity rate declined to 1.6% from last week’s 1.7%. Now both of numbers are actually good enough for yellow tier — however, a county is represented by its worst performing of three metrics. That leaves San Diego County in the orange tier, which features some business restrictions.
San Diego County will adhere to California guidelines and wait until June 15 to lift the requirement for face coverings in indoor settings and crowded outdoor settings for people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, officials announced Monday.
\The county’s positivity rate declined to 1.6% from last week’s 1.7% and the health equity positivity rate — how the state measures a county’s most vulnerable or underserved quartile — increased to 2%.
