People need to have their livlihoods back if they can do it safely. Families need to have the joy of weddings still and if we can do it safely, it's a win win!

You need to start opening these venues. We already postponed once last year. It’s not right

Either the rules and restrictions apply to ALL or they should be lifted. A
lot of people are suffering, and it's mostly not due to being sick, but rather being denied their right to make a living. The problems that will arise from the economic collapse will far surpass those caused by the virus itself. Walmart, Amazon, Home Depot and many other "big box" stores have increased their profits in the last year more than they have in the last 10 years. The government is overstepping their powers to govern by denying everyone to engage in free enterprise. If you don't want to leave your home, then that's your right. But businesses are failing because of the restrictions in place and ALL of us will suffer if these people are not allowed to make a living. Taxes will go up, unemployment will rise, and families will not be able to meet their basic needs. Desperate people will resort to desperate measures in order to survive. It's time for the government to get out of people's personal business and let hard-working taxpayers get back to work. God bless America.

I fear for the live event professionals who have no income.
