Lakeside Cafe keeps indoor dining open despite Purple Tier restrictions

LAKESIDE (KUSI) – Regardless of San Diego County being moved back into the most restrictive Purple Tier, many restaurants around the county have told KUSI that they will defy Governor Newsom’s orders and remain open anyway.

The Purple Tier forces restaurants to close their indoor operations, so all customers are forced to eat outdoors. But, after closing indoor operations for weeks during the first lockdown, many restaurant owners fear they will never be able to reopen if they do so again.

KUSI’s Kacey McKinnon was live at Lakeside Cafe where the owners have decided to defy Newsom’s orders to close, saying they “will stay open until someone comes knocking our doors down.”
