Cowboy Star restaurant dealing with COVID-19 restrictions

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The county will find out Tuesday if it will slip back to the purple tier of the state’s coronavirus reopening roadmap.

If so, it would likely shutter indoor operations for restaurants, movie theaters, houses of worship and gyms, limit retail businesses to just 25% capacity and have major impacts on indoor business for most other industries until the county can improve its numbers.

Angie Weber, the owner of Cowboy Star restaurant, joined Good Morning San Diego to talk about the challenges they’re facing as they await word from the state Tuesday on the expected rollback to Tier 1.

Should the county be placed in that tier, it would have to wait a minimum of three weeks before moving back to less restrictive tiers.

If state data announced Tuesday shows the county has a case rate higher than 7, it could be moved into the purple tier — the most restrictive. However, if the numbers from the university were removed from the equation, San Diego County would suddenly drop below the mark to remain in the red tier.
