Drove through downtown Santa Barbara last night. Restaurants were doing indoor dining and there were lots of crowds with no masks. What are you all seeing this holiday weekend?

I went hiking in Burbank. People were wearing masks for the most part and social distancing.

Hopefully they were spacing out tables so there was enough distance in between diners to prevent potential spread. *Enjoying what I can indoors as much as possible since LA infection rates are still not decreasing to the standards of state and federal guidelines. Somehow we became the hotbed of covid19 in CA over the past 2 months.* *Socially distancing wherever I can when I need to go outside to get food or just take a walk.* *Going house crazy and having thoughts like if this virus had more dramatic symptoms, like explosively vomiting blood in the movies, instead of cowardly asymtimatically infecting people, then maybe people would be socially distancing more and DEFINITELY be wearing a mask instead of complaining that this slightest inconvenience infringes on their "freedom."*

Venice Beach was crowded af - lots of people, lots of cops, but very little social distancing :/

My wife is still in grad school, so I’m the only earner and we will have lots of loans soon. so even missing 2-3 weeks of pay is missing out on a big opportunity of loan pay down.
