SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously today to immediately open up county-owned parks for worship and
fitness activities, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Supervisor Dianne Jacob made the proposal, saying it will "lend a helping hand" to both religious facilities and gymnasiums or fitness-oriented
businesses unable to hold indoor services under a state order issued last month.
Jacob said that restaurants have created outside dining areas on sidewalks and parking lots, in response to a ban on indoor dining, and now the
county can be creative.
