Things are just crazy in these unprecedented times. Just some links to more information as we “shelter in place”.
A Special City Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 6:30. The Council will review a single items for Business and Resident Relief- Covid 19. Staff is working the details now so stay tuned.
A couple notes:
- Here is a link to the Health Officer’s Shelter in Place Order on Covid 19 https://www.yolocounty.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=62366
- This is the one from the Governor and the State: https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs/
- The City has established a business assistance page for small businesses to seek help for themselves and for their employees: https://www.cityofwinters.org/business-resources-for-shelter-in-place/
- Here is the Yolo County Guidance document which is really good to figure all of this out: https://www.yolocounty.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=62400
Just a final note on the resilience of our small businesses and their commitment to our community and their employees. I am seeing the real heart from many of our businesses, their concern for their employees and attempts to maintain themselves in the most uncharted waters of our time. So many are standing amongst their staffs trying to navigate the many edicts coming down (literally many times a day) and showing the grit, strength and character which defines the renaissance which is Winters.
There are so many unknowns with all of this. The uncertainty is just maddening with peoples livelihoods on the line and real people and families affected. We have dealt with difficult times before and persevered and this is but another massive challenge. I know we will come through this because we are an amazing town and rally with each other during the toughest of times. We will never give up on each other and simply need to support the fact that we have never been just given anything, we earn it all because we are just that type of community. Winters is the best town in the region because of who we are. We are small and mighty with “grit”.
