Cowboy Star Restaurant shares frustrations over regional stay at home order

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – California health officials are urging the state’s residents to stay home as much as possible because of a coronavirus surge taxing the state’s hospitals.

The shutdown order by Gov. Gavin Newsom took effect last weekend.

Cowboy Star Restaurant owner, Angie Weber, joined Good Morning San Diego and said, “We are incredibly frustrated with the closure of restaurants and gyms, the states Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr Ghaly admitted this week that they have no data to show that our sectors are contributing to increased Covid cases, but rather they picked our businesses to close in an effort to keep people home. But they didn’t close big box retail. I struggle to understand if this is just incompetence or is it outright malice. Out of the last 364 days, we have only been open to guests for 91 days. However, we have had to pay fees to the state and the county the entire time we have been closed. People need to understand, that these small grants they’re offering don’t even cover the fees we have been forced to pay them.”

“Our entire Cowboy Star family was crushed when they shut us down for the 3rd time on Nov 13th, we were able to keep our managers at a lower salary so that they still had some income going through the holidays, they all have little kids and we just couldn’t bare doing that to them,” said Weber
