I guess you think it’s ok for the government to pick which jobs-businessess try to survive.I think this is to allow restaurants to possibly still earn money while considering and mitigating the risks. If one goes outside for anything, there is a chance that social interaction will take place. I see more social interaction in the grocery store checkout line than just about anywhere else. I don't need a chatty Cathy (apologies to anyone named Cathy) chatting it up with the store clerk in front of me at checkout. Any time the mouth opens, there is chance droplets transfer to a surface and transfer to my food packaging. Should we shut down grocery stores because social interaction can take place?
No restaurant is an essential source of food, grocery stores are an essential source of food. I thought we could all agree on that, maybe not?
Lockdown means eliminating all social interaction possible, we all have to have groceries but we could all do without that take out order. No?
People can go to the grocery store ounce a week or less often, those that order take out may do so numerous times a week & would still need groceries.
No matter how you look at leaving restaurants open it leads & encourages a lot of non essential social interaction
