    When will you people realize that the government will only continue to chip away your freedom until you have nothing? We have to restore our country and NEVER CLOSE AGAIN!

    Regarding COVID-19 social policy, there is enough conflicting information from qualified sources, and a wholesale lack of trust in our elected officials and the lack of trust in the mechanisms in the plan to re-open, to justify the considerable overreach of these sweeping provisions. These policies appear to be driven out of the fear of the inevitable spread of infection, without reconciling the current data which demonstrates harm confined to a very small segment of the population. Instead of a one size fits all policy that, it should be targeted to the vulnerable groups and those that interact with those groups ought to take responsibility for the prevention of infection spread into those groups.

    Given the amount of informed and frustrated individuals who agree with the above, and what the sheriff will not be enforcing this weekend, what is the position of Hermosa Beach to enforce, or to selectively enforce the items on the agenda?

    Can we please get a clear policy on city parks? Seaview Parkette has been locked closed while it seems most other parks are open. Why can the children not play on the grass and in the sand? Those of us without yards are now having our children play on sidewalks and in parking lots. This is not nearly as safe as a park. Just the other day a stop sign was taken out be a vehicle on the sidewalk not far from where my son was playing in the school parking lot. Lets use some common sense here please.

    NY hasn’t and is continuing to delay their dine-in because of the high numbers across the US. For the health and safety of our community, we need to do our part and close down.

    People don’t social distance well after a couple drinks, & it’ll be hard and too much work for the restaurants to trace contracts. Please close down!

    The first time the bars were shut down, I had gotten COVID from my roommate who works at one of the “so called restaurant bars.”

    There is just no way to enforce that all patrons wear masks when they’re not drinking/eating or to enforce the “restaurants/bars” to abide by the safety protocol. Just when you think it’s safe, people will put their guard down.

    Even with the safety guidelines, these bars still operate with larger crowds of people who remove masks more frequently to drink, and loud music/tv noise “may force customers to raise their voices — potentially spreading more airborne particles.”

    None of these bars have ever stopped & voluntarily closed their bar/s because they were concerned for their employees and patrons. It’s just about profit. How much profit is worth the lives that have been lost & will be lost? I would strongly advise that you shut down all dine in immediately before it’s too late.

    We need to consider our local small town businesses. I understand this is a crisis however closing at 10 PM will hurt them. There has to be a way that we can come to some kind of compromise that is mutually beneficial for our city, our health, for our businesses and for our community.
