On Monday, August 31, 2020, the State of California updated its coronavirus guidelines to reopen indoor retail stores at 25% capacity. I did a walk-around at Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Silicon Valley on Friday, 9/4/2020. The mall wasn’t restricting the number of people coming inside. Each store was responsible for restricting the number of people coming into their place of business. Popular stores like the Apple Store had long lines to get in. Most stores closed. Some stores like the Microsoft Store were permanently closed. Due to restrictions imposed by Santa Clara County, indoor theaters and restaurants are still closed. This is the first video in this playlist.
