CHICO, Calif. - On Friday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) posted to the agency's official website, "there is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond six feet."
People and businesses in Chico have mixed feelings about the confusing messages.
“There is constant changes and with what is going on, it kind of makes me feel like it is not going to end anytime soon,” said Burgers and Brew employee, Odin Lopez.
Lopez says the changing coronavirus guidelines make it difficult to ensure customers are following the rules.

“Actually, extremely difficult sometimes," said Lopez. "Sometimes people are very awesome and 100% with it and it is good to see that fresh air but there are still some people who lack that common sense sometimes.”
The tables at Burgers and Brew are socially distanced and they hope to keep them this way.
“They are completely separate at six feet," said Lopez. "We constantly do get people who try to move them together and we are not allowed to do that obviously, but it usually works out and people understand and we follow the rules. Everyone that comes in here wears a mask. If you don’t have a mask, we are going to have to ask you to please get one, and then everything continues.”
One person said he’s not surprised the CDC is constantly changing its guidance.
“It’s not too surprising given there is a lot of unknowns with the virus. So, information is going to change quite frequently," said Adam Chism. "It is not too surprising especially with how infectious the virus is.”
Lopez said he hopes the CDC does not change the social distancing guidelines. He said if it is any more than six feet, Burgers and Brew will probably have to go back to take out orders only.
Butte County Public Health said when CDC releases information then deletes it, they then have to let the public know that the CDC made a mistake.
