Since 4th of July weekend we've heard that San Diego County has been placed on the watchlist due to rising numbers in confirmed COVID-19 cases. And even though Carlsbad has done an excellent job at flattening the curve, and has some of the lowest numbers to report, being part of San Diego County means that it would face a rollback. What does that mean? For the next three weeks (hopefully no longer) all inside restaurant dining has to stop. And bars, tasting rooms, and wineries that don't serve food must close entirely. However, outdoor patio dining, like that seen at Park 101 above, is still open! And curbside pickup and delivery are still alive and well! And with the city's private parking lot and sidewalk activation options, dining al fresco could expand to make safely supporting our Village restaurants even easier. Thank you for wearing a mask and for helping our amazing eateries thrive.
