Local Business Assistance During COVID-19


The statewide 4-stage Resilience Roadmap is unfolding and Mendocino County is expanding into Stage-2.5, as lower-risk workplaces are allowed to reopen. This includes all destination retail for limited in-person shopping and dine-in restaurants.  All business are required to “Self Certify” in order to operate. Essential businesses that never closed have 7-days, or until May 27th to complete certification. Stage-2.5 businesses allowed to reopen must complete the certification before they open. Don’t fret! You all have been considering your business reopening plans and self-certification is a simple and straight-forward task. It will take you 5 minutes online.
