Question: You can eat outdoors. You can have gatherings up to 10 people, but is it safe at this point to get together with a few of your friends and go out and eat at an outdoor restaurant? Is that something you would advise people to do or is it better to only be with your household members or still stay home as much as possible?
Mayor: I think there's two immediate answers I would offer. The first is this is a very personal decision that people need to make, and I'd say to anyone who feels cautious or uncomfortable, listen to that and less is more right? We're trying to find a path that is stable and secure, and that does not allow this disease to reassert. Don't do anything you're not comfortable with, if you think you're being asked to do something that is inappropriate.
The best group of people to be dining with is the people who live under the same roof with, because there you do not have to worry about additional exposure. If people are thinking about getting together with anyone they don't live under the same roof with, they need to really practice distancing, use the face coverage to the maximum, et cetera, be real cautious about it. Take it slow.
