So they steal your business and don’t give you any compensation for it? Again:
Small businesses, if they are shutting you down for "the greater good", demand appropriate compensation. Enough. https://t.co/AdpxdXGU1f

Mayor Lond Breed says the city will run out of hospital beds by Christmas, which she wasn’t worried about when she went to the fancy French Laundry restaurant:
San Francisco, along with other Bay Area counties, is opting in to the Governor's regional Stay at Home Order effective Sunday at 10pm.
We're on pace to run out of hospital beds to care for patients the day after Christmas. We must turn this around now. https://t.co/F0qwFnCb9e

Most of California will likely soon be locked-down as well:
CA's new Stay At Home orders, per Gov Newsom, will be based on ICU capacity rather than overall cases. When region falls below 15% ICU capacity then stricter new stay at home orders will be in place. Most of CA could fall below 15% in the next few days says Newsom.

Expect our SoCal region to follow suit within a matter of days. https://t.co/E7DKzkogfO

But on the bright side, Lorena Gonzalez of AB5 fame is asking Gov. Newsom to keep playgrounds open:
Today, we sent another letter to the Governor urging him to reconsider the full closure of playground structures. The local playground may be the only opportunity for some families to “get outdoors,” as advised for physical & mental health. pic.twitter.com/2FB8Oe1CgQ

Thank you for this tiny bit of sanity:
I've been very critical of you regarding AB5 but thank you for this.
