The Escondido Eats on Grand event that had been planned for this weekend on Grand Avenue has been cancelled.
Louisa Magoon of the Downtown Business Association told The Times-Advocate: “We’ve decided to cancel the event for next Friday the 26th due to the rise in COVID19 cases in San Diego. We’re all so disappointed. The restaurants were really looking forward to it.”
Mrs. Magoon had written to DBA members several days ago, “Lots of work went into planning it and we were all so excited to get some customers coming downtown to support our businesses, but it is not worth the risk. Apparently two of the outbreaks in San Diego were at restaurants. It is so important to do everything we can to be in compliance with the regulations.”
She added, “Unfortunately, there are those who refuse to wear masks and social distance. Their decisions are affecting everyone!”
