Facial Coverings Help Slow The Spread of COVID-19

Wearing a face covering can reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting the release of infectious particles into the air. The virus spreads when a person infected with the virus speaks, sneezes or coughs within six feet of one another. As a reminder, COVID-19 can be spread by individuals who may not be showing symptoms and may feel just fine. 

Find resources with fun graphics to share on social media, hang in a shop window or post wherever folks might need a friendly reminder. Let's all work together to keep our community safe.

Local Business Assistance During the COVID-19 Crisis

West Business Development Center has created Coronavirus Business Resources to assist local businesses during the Corona Virus Crisis.

California was the first to request the Small Business Administration for disaster relief. Low interest rate loans are available both for for-profit businesses (3.75 percent) and non-profit businesses (2.75 percent). This amount can be up to $2 million, and the payback period may be up to 30 years. Information can be found here.

Landlord Assistance Fund Program


The Fort Bragg City Council initiated a program to assist local property owners impacted by a loss in revenue due to a tenant’s inability to pay rent, as a result of COVID-19. Eligible property owners can apply for up to $2,000 in a zero interest loan, to be paid back within 180 days of the Shelter-in-Place mandate being lifted. Funds are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
