It’s official. The US is now the designated epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic,
overtaking China. As of March 26, the US has now 85,268 cases across all 50 states.
While this is definitely a bad thing, it is only natural for the number of confirmed
cases to rise as more people get tested.
If some people weren’t taking this virus seriously before, they definitely should now.
Basic guidelines on sanitation like proper hand washing are promulgated extensively.
Furthermore, a lockdown order across California saw all non-essential businesses
shutter their doors. Restaurants and eateries, declared as essential by the US
government, can still operate provided they do take-outs or deliveries. With the
number of cases in the US still projected to rise, it would be a safe assumption to
say that this lockdown order will go on for several more weeks. A lot of businesses
cannot weather this. Some have already closed down permanently, saving
themselves the heartbreak waiting for them at the end of the tunnel.
That is not true for all though. Some are still optimistic, hoping that they get
through these trying times. Restaurants and eateries across The Bay have quickly
created delivery and take-out systems that weren’t present before to cater and
serve the customers and friends they have known through the years. Bonito Poke
has launched its online ordering and anyone can start ordering online and pick up orders starting this Saturday (3/27/2020) from 11:30am to 6:30pm at the 701 Valencia st, San Francisco, CA.
With The Rona (as the young kids would like to call this pandemic) still on the loose,
it looks like we’re in this for the long haul. But we’re weathering through this
Stay safe, fishfam.
