THIS IS WHAT IT SHOULDHAVE BEEN LIKE THE LAST TWOMONTHS..

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE SHUTDOWN.ANOTHER CUSTOMER -- DINING INSAYING HE WAS TESTED FORCOVID-19.HIS RESULTS WERE NEGATIVE AND HEBELIEVES THE GOVERNOR SHOULDSTEP ASIDE.I THINK ITS A POLITICAL DEAL ANDIDO THINK THE VIRUS IS REAL BUT ITHINK THEY BLEW IT OUT OFPROPORTION.AND WHILE SOME RESTAURANTS HAVEOPENED - OTHERS HAVECHOSEN TO WAIT AWHILE.THE OWNER OF CAMINO DE (RE-AL)REAL, BOSS PIZZA CO.
