@ryan I was just in town last month, the day that everything opened officially. Service workers are essentially fucked. With the restrictions I saw in place they really shouldn’t be open yet. My dad works at a restaurant/bar and one of the servers he works with only got three tables one night. I don’t know exactly what the situation is but I think it was way too early.

@FromtheAbyss it seems like things got a little more fall-of-rome in the last week or twi, because we're sort of kind of scaling back down again. it's maximally confusing, which i guess Independent Brewing Company needed to vent a little about

@ryan @FromtheAbyss I think there are a lot of businesses that were kind of forced to open bc of economic concerns (some money is better than none) but theyre also not run by irresponsible, selfish people who think their profit is more important than ppls health, so this is the way they can voice their dissent and hope it makes ppl stay home

@ItsJenNotGabby @ryan very well put. I think you’re right.
