    No wonder why this thread has been an absolute cluster **** for the last few days.
    I had asked SiteWolf a question regarding his statement about churches being in a murky category. These categories are used to determine at what capacity they are allowed to operate. You said Kohlís and malls are in that category. Not sure why itís a stretch to think youíre implying they should be treated the same if they are in the same category.

    Nope. Individual businesses own malls and lease their space to other business. A mall is absolutely a business.

    If you're referring to businesses that are undoubtedly non-essential, you are absolutely right.

    Okay, fair enough. Do you think Best Buy should be open?

    But they're open. Without a SC ruling.

    I think they should be treated like a non-essential business. Whether that means they only have pick-up or some sort of limited in person shopping depends on where it is and what the recommendations are in that area given their pandemic numbers. I wouldnít go into a Best Buy personally right now.

    Churches were open before the SC ruling too.

    Not with anything near the same capacity though.

    But under the same guidelines as other non-essential businesses.

    Well, that's where you and I are on the exact opposite page. Every business should be open at the same capacity. The spread at a grocery store is not somehow less problematic than the spread at a best buy.

    If anything, the spread at a grocery store is far worse than the spread at a best but because people are constantly picking up products at a grocery store to look at expiration dates and nutritional value. All the while pushing around a cart that 100 other people pushed around that day.

    Not in terms of capacity, which is what this conversation was started about.

    Right. But the benefit for that risk is higher with a grocery store. I havenít been in a Best Buy for years because I donít shop for what they sell very often and can, and already was pre-pandemic buying that stuff on line. I need to buy stuff at the grocery store at least weekly.
