Businesses look to rebound as virus restrictions ease once again

Outdoor dining returned to the Strawberry Village Shopping Center and the rest of California last week after the state ended the hospitalization-based stay-home order and assigned most counties, including Marin, to the purple tier for widespread transmission of the coronavirus — which is still the most restrictive of the four-tier framework to resume business and social activities.

Tiburon Peninsula business owners can once again expand operations after the state and county ended its most recent stay-at-home orders last week — and while many said they welcomed the chance at increased business, they also noted they planned to proceed cautiously as the pandemic drags on. “This is our new normal,” said Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Executive Director DeAnn Biss. “We’re all trying to navigate, and our businesses are being very responsive to the conditions." Paulino Monterroso, owner of Salt & Pepper restaurant on Main Street, said the restaurant had planned to resume outdoor dining last week but delayed because of several days of rain. “Now what I’m wishing for is good weather,” he said.
