City leaders are acting very appropriately in this case, and closing down the opportunities that the downtown enjoyed, when they were no longer complying with the safety measures for the community. It's true that a few rotten apples spoiled it for the bunch. Had those businesses kept their patrons in line, the rest of the community as well as their own businesses, could be enjoying more business, that the street closures had offered. A lesson that we all should take into consideration as COVID19 is not going away.

Why not deal with the businesses violating the orders or close down that block. This sounds like the punishment dealt out to a 1st grade class - bad apples?? Choking off every business's livelihood as we head into winter seems short-sighted and punitive.
