“While we commend the Governor’s announcements yesterday there are several critical points that were not touched upon or were completely left out. While we will be “allowed” to have indoor gatherings up to 25% capacity or 50 people, the Governor is explicitly excluding indoor dining from this announcement. Indoor dining is inherently an indoor ‘gathering’ and it makes no sense not to include them in 25% capacity limits effective immediately.

“Further why not allow graduations immediately at 100 people or on June 22 with the 250-person capacity. Many districts could work within those guidelines.

“Based on the data that was shared and these new announcements from the Administration, it is very clear we could allow indoor dining immediately, or at the very least by June 12. Proceeding with outdoor-only dining by June 15 while ‘other’ indoor gatherings are allowed at a percentage immediately seems completely illogical and needlessly punitive.”
