Amid the recent news that there is currently a ban in place of San Diego public gatherings exceeding 250 people, many wonder what that means for club events and social gatherings happening around Hillcrest. 

Hale Media produces many of those events and publisher Johnathan Hale has put out a statement in regards to what happens next. 

"In concurrence with the recent California mandate of not gathering more than 250 people in one space at a time, Hale Media is working closely to adjust events we are associated with. Venues will continue to remain open and maintain a capacity of under 250 people, including Rich's. Should this change we will notify people through our text messaging and email platforms. We want to continue to maintain safe spaces and encourage people to follow CDC guidelines to suppress further COVID-19 cases in San Diego. 

Whether you believe this pandemic should be taken seriously or not, the fallout from social distancing will have a significant impact on small businesses and their employees so please be respectful of community member's feelings during this time."
