    Current Health Order

    Mendocino County’s revised SIP goes in effect Friday, July 3 at 12:00 p.m. and will be in place until 12:00 p.m. on August 3, 2020. A revised order will be released upon the expiration of this Order.

    Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan issued a new Shelter-In-Place (SIP) Order today, Wednesday, July 1, 2020, which is slated to go into effect at 12:00 pm on Friday July 3, 2020. The new Order maintains the current stage 3 opening, but adds additional restrictions to certain sectors and activities to ensure public safety in light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Mendocino County. California’s positivity rate is trending upward and Governor Newsom has made it clear to counties that following the State’s Orders and guidance is mandatory. The State is closely monitoring local counties and cities that are experiencing surges and if necessary the State will come in and require local jurisdictions to roll back openings especially for high risk business sectors. The new Order is in line with State guidance with measures to address high risk areas..

    We will be posting resources to help our local businesses during this difficult and unprecedented crisis.  

    The Chamber is here to support you and our goal is to provide as much information as possible so that you will have access to resources that can help you through this extremely challenging time.

    Although our office is closed, I'll be working from home and available via phone and email.  I've temporarily laid off my staff to mitigate the impact on the Chamber budget.

    For eNews submissions:  
    *Please note that all submissions should be regarding announcements that follow all state and local orders. We ask that events are not submitted at this time unless they are virtual events or webinars.

    It is designed to represent businesses from Hopland to Laytonville, across the county to Boonville, Fort Bragg and the South coast. The focus of the campaign is to create a central marketing effort to support local businesses to generate income while closed to the public.

    The campaign is a perfect platform to market your services, gift cards, and products. It will directly link customers to your selling platform. (delivery, curbside pickup, etc. within the guidelines of the most recent Shelter In Place orders must be observed)





    I'm partnering with the County, EDFC, West Center and the other Chambers in the County with meetings twice a week so we can brainstorm how we can best support you.

    Please let me know how else I can support you and your businesses.

    I hope that you are all doing as well as can be expected under these stressful times.

    Take care, STAY HOME and be well.

    A message for business that use Square

    Today Square Online Store released the option for curbside pickup, and later this week a local delivery feature will be available for all businesses so that you can quickly adapt to this changing environment. They are also waiving curbside pickup and delivery fees for the next three months. Square Online Store already offers online orders for in-store pickup with no monthly fee. They are refunding all software subscription fees for the month of March.
