Business Owners Need Better Solutions
San Diego County should come up with greater ways to stop the spread of the Corona Virus. Rather than forcing them to close, according to business owners.
Business Owners are Saying the Closure Would be Permanent
Dozens of business owners said they would not close down again if Governor Newsom or San Diego County officials made them close. But now, many of them are saying the closure is permanent.
530 new COVID-19 Infections, Region’s total Cases Were 58,636
Because San Diego County public health officials give details of 530 new COVID-19 infections on Thursday, November 5th. Therefore, this raised the region’s total to 58,636 cases. The county was waiting on Tuesday, November 3rd whether it would sink into the dreaded purple tier. This would be of the state’s four-tiered COVID-19 reopening.
Dread Purple Tier
The “Purple Tier” could force restaurants, churches and gyms to close all indoor operations. Plus, retail businesses can only operate at 25% capacity.
As of Thursday, no new death were total.
No new deaths were reported Thursday. The total fatalities related to the illness in the San Diego remains at 904.
Unadjusted New Daily Corona Virus Case Rate
State officials reported Wednesday that San Diego County had an unadjusted new daily coronavirus case rate of 8.7 per 100,000. The adjusted case rate dropped to 7.4 per 100,000, above the baseline of 7. This qualifies the state for the purple, or most restrictive tier of the reopening plan. Last week’s unadjusted case rate was 7.8 per 100,000.
“It would take a significant change in trajectory,” Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said Wednesday of avoiding purple.
Reopening Plan Guidelines
According to the reopening plan, a county has to report data exceeding a more restrictive tier’s guidelines. Therefore, it is for two consecutive weeks. This would be before being moving to a more restrictive tier. A county then has to be in that tier for a minimum of three weeks. This is before it may move to a less restrictive tier.
