I could have asked this at the end of the airport opening thread but thought it worth it's own thread. One of the questions was whether people would be allowed to shop. The answer was that they would be allowed to shop in their hotel gift shop and that the hotel would be encouraged to allow locals to bring in items for sale. So is it going to be against the law for someone to walk down the street and buy something?

Likewise, I understand the requirement that Gold Star hotels have restaurants, but are guests going to be required to eat each and every meal on site? This isn't stated. Part of the joy of San Pedro for me is the various open-air dining opportunities. I haven't been to a restaurant in the United States for months because I think being in an indoor area is dangerous, but an open air area with ocean breezes seems pretty safe to me.

I'm just curious. I've given some thought to coming down and staying for perhaps several months. I think things are going to get pretty awful in the U.S. But I don't want to be confined to a single hotel!

In this first phase of reopening guests are restricted to the resort. Food deliveries from outside should be available as well as groceries and other items. Guests can leave the site, on guided tours with approved tour guides.

You mention staying several months. Pretty sure that after your first two weeks you can go out and about.

Hey, thanks to both of you for your answer. I was really bummed out by the first answer, far happier after the second. I think things are about to get dreadful up here in the USA and the thought of a plane trip terrifies me, so I could live with two weeks of shut down in a resort if it meant several more weeks of freedom.

Sorry but if you are in a resort on vacation that is not counted as being in quarantine. To quarantine you will be required to stay within the confines of your room or unit in order to quality as having been quarantined for 14 days. This is because if you roam the resort you will be mingling and exposed to other tourists.
