COVID-19 Hospitalizations on the Rise Locally

Covid-19 hospitalizations in City of Santa Barbara and in Santa Barbara County are on the rise. As we do our best as a community to contain the spread of the virus locally, while welcoming locals and visitors back to our businesses, please make sure your business is conscientiously following the social distancing and hygiene guidelines specific to your business type. Wear masks as employees and encourage patrons do the same. There is no doubt, this is a challenging time to do business and we commend you all for how hard your working to keep our community safe and all you are doing to go the extra mile. We like all of you, want to best insure our business community is able to proceed through additional reopening phases and not be forced into any additionally restrictive measures going forward.
