Dear Morgan Hill Business Community,
This past week it has become clear that we are in the midst of another significant spike in COVID-19 cases. As a result, the State moved the County of Santa Clara into the Purple Tier (Tier One), the most restrictive tier in the State’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy”. The changes went into effect Tuesday, November 17, 2020 and are outlined in the Executive Summary provided by the County. Please review the new Mandatory Directive on Capacity Limitations for further information on changes to capacity limitations.
This disruption to our economy and public life is devastating to Morgan Hill businesses and it is imperative we come together as a community and continue the safe practices that we know help stop the spread of this deadly virus:
- wearing a proper mask at all times when in public,
- maintaining social distancing of at least six feet, and
- limiting indoor contact with people outside of our household
You can play a big part in this by:
Sending a letter or email to all of your vendors reminding them of the safe practices they need to be especially vigilant about maintaining now and for the next few months.
Communicating with your workforce that they need to use safe practices whether they are working onsite, out in the field, or remotely.
To help you convey this message, and to support our businesses, we have launched a “Buy Local Morgan Hill” campaign in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce to message the importance of social distancing, wearing face coverings, and practicing good hygiene through educational posters. We ask that each of you help #stopthespread by printing and posting these messages in public view at each of your businesses. The posters are formatted in two sizes and can be conveniently download using the associated links; 11” x 17” and 24” x 36”.
Please know we are here to support you the best way we can. By working together, we will get through this challenging time. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Economic Development team at:
