REDDING, Calif. - A spike in coronavirus cases in Shasta County forces tighter restrictions on businesses.

Earlier this week, the state placed Shasta County in the red tier or substantial category under Governor Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan.

“Here we go again,” said Brett Miller, the restaurant manager at C.R. Gibbs American Grille. “We're hopeful that it won't go to purple and we won't have to go outside dining only.”

While the county is not yet in the purple, businesses like restaurants are faced with these stricter restrictions.

“We've already been there and it's just very unfortunate with the time,” said Miller. “I feel like in Shasta County we're getting the wrong end of the stick.”

With these restrictions, C.R. Gibbs says it's utilizing its outdoor patio more and is seating people at every other table inside.

“We moved tables out and pushed tables together,” said Miller. “At a six top, we're only seating two people at a time.”

But customers say with these constant changes, it not only can hurt business but also affects the people who work there.

“I think it's really frustrating for business owners, I’m a business owner,” said John Loveless, who came to eat at the restaurant.

“Especially for a restaurant, you order supplies, order produce, order food, and then you schedule the employees.”

C.R. Gibbs says it’s prepared if the county is pushed into the purple tier or widespread category. The restaurant says it plans to bring back more of its outdoor seating if the county is placed in the purple tier.

Under the red tier, bars and breweries that do not serve food must close. But hair salons, gyms, and places of worship can remain open with modifications.
