The City has a COVID-19 Small Business Loan Program and temporary relaxed business regulations. Additional federal, state and county business resources are listed on the City website.

We continue to encourage everyone to shop small, shop local, shop Oceanside.
There are many resources for community members impacted by COVID-19 regulation furloughs or layoffs: food distributions, legal aid, mental health resources, and more: Community Resources

Early data from large trials indicate that at least one COVID vaccine is strongly effective, exceeding expectations. All but one of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in Phase 3 clinical trials in the U.S. need two shots to be effective. Initial supplies of vaccines will be limited, and will be prioritized to vaccinate health care workers, first responders, and the most vulnerable elderly populations first. Supplies will continually increase in the weeks and months that follow. Vaccines are planned to be available at doctors' offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and health centers. More
It's up to each of us to do our part to help prevent the spread of this illness, which can be very serious for many. This is especially important as we enter the winter months and holidays and are indoors more often.

Thank you for continuing all COVID precautionary measures: Wash hands frequently, maintain distance from others, wear a face covering in public, and avoid gatherings.
