South Coast City Hopes Allowing Al Fresco Dining Will Help Struggling Restaurants

Santa Barbara's State Street has been closed in the city's downtown area to allow restaurants to add outdoor seating, as they resume in person dining.

Santa Barbara is trying to help restaurants which have been hard hit by the coronvirus crisis by allowing them to move tables outdoors. 

As a part of the move, much of State Street has been closed to traffic so tables can be moved onto sidewalks, and into the street.
