Colorado Restaurant Reopens with No Social Distancing

As stupid as people normally are, I can’t get over how stupid this kind of behavior is.

A Castle Rock restaurant saw big crowds Sunday when it fully reopened for Mother’s Day in open defiance of the statewide public health order that limits restaurants to takeout and delivery services.

Customers packed C&C Coffee and Kitchen on Trail Boss Drive on Sunday, filling the restaurant’s tables, its patio and forming a line out the door for dine-in service.

“It was unbelievable to me,” said Nick Whitehill, who’d ordered food for what he thought would be curbside pickup Sunday.

Whitehill said he was surprised to see the large crowd when he arrived. Wearing a mask, he went inside to try to pick up his order, which he’d already paid for, but left right away, without his food, after realizing that none of the staff were wearing masks and no one inside was practicing social distancing, he said.
