No business model for most business under the "10-10-10" reopen plan. Quinton Lucas nailed the first nail in the coffin for the majority of the restaurants in Kansas City. Unfortunately his plan doesn't address the most important component of mitigation of the pandemic, social distance. Limiting the number of people doesn't guarantee social distance. The goal should be social distance without reference to the number of people. We shall see if Mayor Selfie nails the coffins shut. The adjoining communities have an opportunity to better support the businesses at the expense of the KC MO businesses. More revenue shortfalls unaddressed by Quinton Lucas.
