Dine al fresco downtown
The main drag in downtown Campbell has been closed to east-west traffic to allow restaurants and retailers to expand their operation out into the street. The initial closure of a portion of Campbell Avenue is expected to last through Aug. 14 and may continue through the end of the month “if things go well enough,” according to a statement from the Downtown Campbell Business Association.
According to the association, “If it goes very well, the Campbell City Council can vote to extend it.”
“Enjoy our outdoor dining options responsibly,” the statement reads. “Come with just your household members and keep your social distance with everyone else. Wear a mask at all times except when you’re eating or drinking.”
The association is asking people to wear masks not just when they arrive at a business but when they’re walking along Campbell Avenue.
“Safety is going to be a large portion of whether this is judged to be successful,” the association continues. “There are a lot of people who are avoiding downtown Campbell entirely because there are too many people without masks. We need people to feel safe in our downtown so our businesses can survive.”

Stephen Moore: Q3 GDP Will Double US Record, 30-35 Percent
"This coming week we get the blockbuster number on GDP growth, which we are estimating to be between 30% and 35%," Moore told "The Cats Roundtable" on WABC 770 AM-N.Y.
"The previous record in the last 75 years was 1952 [when] we had a quarter or two of 15%. This growth rate for the third quarter, thats July through the end of September, will be twice the previous record in terms of GDP."
Setting those kind of expectations are noteworthy in the final week of a campaign, because setting those lofty goals and not reaching them would hit President Donald Trumps economic narrative in the final week before the Nov. 3 election.
Moore also boasted to host John Catsimatidis, the Trump administration has "knocked 15 million people" off of unemployment, a group size that equates to about twice the New York metropolitan area.
"The economy is doing well," Moore despite global coronavirus pandemic restrictions stifling the true potential of the Trump economy. "Real estate is doing well. Housing is doing well. Consumers are spending again. Were seeing retail come back. The only part of the economy right now that worries me is that travel is still very weak, and recreation and leisure.
"Technology is just shooting the moon."
Moore concluded now is a bad time to rip Trump out of the White House.
"We do not want to change pilots right now," Moore said.
"I believe this is the best recovery we have ever seen from a recession in the history of the United States."
