Crystal Hikal started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

The President of the United States should issue an immediate declaration to close all restaurants, bars, and public eateries immediately, even for pick up and take away!

We cannot control the spreading of the illness by employees to the customers taking the food home.

Business owners cannot claim federal funds to cover their overhead in the face of such decreased sales unless federal and/or state legislation has been passed forcing the restaurants to close. Landlords still insist on getting their rent even if it means forcing owners into bankruptcy!

There is no reason to continue allowing any place of business to sell food to the public in any form nor to ignore the financial effect this has had on those business owners with the majority of customers being afraid to order or go out.

Cities that are based on the presence of large higher education facilities that have been closed are now struggling with near-zero sales.

Some governors like Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia, have ignored the impact on those owners and simply offered low-interest loans which will eventually need to be paid back with no way to recover months of lost sales with no end in site.

I suggest that both President Trump and Governor Northam and other states address the elephant in the room and save the small business owners in the USA so that when this crisis has passed, we are able to recover and continue supporting the citizens of the USA, our communities and our families who depend on our success.
