The first day of May, and many would like to see the government imposed shut down lifted in San Luis Obispo county.
County administrative officer Wade Horton is serving as the Emergency Services Director in the county. He says the county will take over as soon as the governor allows. He says he wants to see the county get back to operating as normal.
That’s how a lot of people feel, but later today, county health officer Penny Borenstein will issue her decision on extending the shut down in the county. She’s lifted some restrictions. This afternoon she is expected to announce her decision on extending the shut down, which is scheduled to continue through May 16th. Will she extend that, or will that be the end of the shut down? You may remember superintendent Curt Dubost’s directive Tuesday night at the Paso Robles school board meeting. He said school will resume May 18th, unless Dr. Borenstein extends the deadline, then it will continue with distance learning until June 4th.
So, Dr. Borenstein’s decision on the shutdown will impact Paso Robles public schools, as well as a lot of other businesses and public agencies.
