Section 2 permits a number of types of enterprise to open as soon as once more and loosens restrictions on others.

Whereas that is nice information for lots of native enterprise homeowners within the included counties, for folk in neighboring counties, it leaves them with lots of questions.

“If there’s different counties, not that distant, which are going to be open quickly, there’ll go the remainder of my enterprise; it’s not honest,” mentioned Roy Cray.

“I would like folks to have the ability to come inside once more,” mentioned Cray.

Whereas Cray is following all of the mandates imposed by the state, he doesn’t assume they’re honest.

“This {restrictions} must be throughout the board. For those who assume not consuming at a restaurant goes to cease all of this, not going to a fitness center goes to cease all this, then, it must cease all over the place, for a time period, until it’s higher, or not. Simply let the folks have the selection themselves, the liberty to have their very own alternative,” he mentioned.
