All businesses open to the general public. The penalties will be placed on businesses that refuse to enforce the mask regulation.

Ordinance 6323

So "out in public" means IN a business and NOT merely walking on the street, in a park, etc.

The rules/regulations are different everywhere in the world aren't they. My grandgirl was up in Santa Barbara the other day for lunch with a friend and said hardly a mask to be seen.

And are the Masks the true protector --- someone I don't believe it.

Restaurants having to close again due to employees getting infected

link

The risk of getting infected by sitting next to an infected person indoors is almost 90 percent versus 12 percent for outdoor seating for the same conditions.

Some fast casual restaurants are requiring patrons be seated in their assigned table during the entire meal with the food being brought by the server to limit the overhang of viral particles to the table with the infected customers. Some of these may have tall partitions to prevent the air conditioning spreading the virus to nearby tables.

The fatality rate of a sickness is the number who died of it divided by the number of people who were infected with it. The CDC estimates it at about 0.26%, though it is impossible to figure it for certain because we don't know how many people had it but were never diagnosed.

You can also divide the number of people who died of a sickness by the number of "cases." Cases are the known infections. That number would not include the large number of people who had covid-19 but never were tested.


Another statistic people like to put out there is the percent of the population that has died from covid-19. That is the number of people who died of covid-19 divided by the entire population of an area.


The statistic you posted is the percentage of deaths that were attributed to covid-19, pneumonia, or influenza. You find that by adding together all deaths caused by those three things, then dividing that number by the total number of deaths. That statistic, while it may be good for something, doesn't really tell you anything about covid-19. It's saying that of all the people who died, a certain percent of them died either from coronavirus, or from influenza, or from pneumonia, or from some combination of those.


The statistic you were comparing it (Frank's number) was probably the percentage of people in a region who do not die of covid-19. Different statistic. Different numbers. Different meaning.

I am still not sure that it's not risky anymore even if people are going already to restaurants. I am preferring staying home and not risk my health. However we will have a small party at home in the yard soon (only few people, who really matter) and we decided to order food for the party from a service https://georgesgreek.com/best-cateri...e-in-van-nuys/. I am preferring things like this, it's still like being somewhere but the food comes to you!
I am not going to risk going out to eat, I still need all to finish before going somewhere.

No. This is false. Many scientist and health experts say antibodies to the virus do not mean you can't get re-infected. There are several people who have already contracted COVID19 twice.

And health experts warn people who have already been infected, could be much more severely impacted long-term if they are infected again.

In fairness, scientists aren't sure if anyone has "contracted COVID twice." They may have gotten false negative tests. The virus may have been dormant/hibernated. Or maybe they did contract it twice. There's no scientific answer yet for that.
