Some retail stores and dine-in restaurants may soon be open in San Diego.
On Monday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to move deeper into phase two re-opening. It would allow in-store retail and dine-in restaurants to reopen as long as they observe social distancing and other safety measures.
The board also voted to move forward with a pilot program that would allow San Diego to move into phase three reopening. That would include the opening of businesses like gyms, hair salons and allow for outdoor religious services along with youth sports. It’s not certain if the pilot program request will be approved by California Governor Gavin Newsom.
KPBS reporter Matt Hoffman and Mark Cafferty, president and CEO of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Council joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss local reopening plans.
