I hope they are not moving too fast. I read horror stories in the news about states that opened bars and barber shops a couple of weeks ago and are now seeing a surge in hospitalizations. Once one person catches the virus, they quickly spread it to their family and co-workers.

I am surprised and delighted to see this. I think they should have done this in the first place (guidance on physical distancing and operations) rather than a lockdown at all, but better late than never.

Thank you, San Mateo County, for being dogmatically overreaching authoritarians only for 3 months, rather than the 6 I had resigned to expecting.
