Small business restaurant and bar owners reached out to the Christian County Health Department in a meeting on Wednesday evening. Almost everyone expressed their support to the Health Department for the tough role they have had in the COVID-19 pandemic, but a lot of owners questioned how the decisions were being made and why bars and restaurants seemed to be targeted.
Larry Ceishrokski of the Spring Garden Restaurant in Taylorville says that it has been very rough for him during this time.
Jean Vanderberg says that she doesn’t understand why bars and restaurants are being targeted.
Vanessa Wiseman who owns Y-Zoes asked the board to look at things on a case by case basis.
Thomas Snyder Jr. addressed the board and urged them to follow Governor JB Pritzker’s mitigations.
