COVID-19 Resources for Tourism Partners

Dear Discover Siskiyou stakeholders and industry partners,

As we continue to navigate the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, our first thought is for the safety and well-being of all the individuals and businesses impacted by these difficult circumstances. We hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this time.

Due to the tourism industry being hit particularly hard by the pandemic, Discover Siskiyou staff has temporarily shifted its focus to supporting the Siskiyou Small Business Development Center (SBDC) by helping small businesses in Siskiyou connect to financial resources designed to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.

Below you will find a link to a document outlining current resources available to Siskiyou businesses. New resources are changing quickly, and we will continue to send updated information as it becomes available. We are standing by to help you navigate these opportunities, apply for aid, and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.

If you have additional questions for our local team after reviewing the resources below, please feel free to email niki@siskiyoucounty.org

Executive Order: Stay Home Except for Essential Needs

On March 23, Gov. Kate Brown issued Executive Order 20-12, effective immediately until further notice. This is a statewide order. Failure to comply with the order will be considered an immediate danger to public health.

For more information, read the latest press release. To read the summary in Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese, or Somali, visit My Oregon News.

In short, here is what is allowed and what is not. If you’re not sure about an activity, skip it. Staying at home as much as possible during this time will save lives.
Allowed (must keep 6 feet from others)

Hospitals and health care
Grocery stores
Banks and Credit Unions
Pharmacies
Take-out/delivery from restaurants and bars
Pet stores
Gas stations
Certain retail stores
Outdoor activities like walking your dog, jogging, or biking in your neighborhood

Not Allowed

Dine-in restaurants and bars
Nightclubs and concerts
Shopping at outdoor or indoor malls and retail complexes

Entertainment: Theaters, amusement parks, arcades, bowling alleys, music concerts, sporting events, museums, skating rinks
Outdoors: State parks, playgrounds, campgrounds, pools, skate parks, festivals

Am I an essential business?

Oregon has not issued an essential business list. The state, instead, has provided a list of business categories that should STOP OPERATING because the nature of these businesses makes it impossible to adhere to social distancing protocol.

Governor Brown has directed businesses to close if they are unable to maintain social distancing protocol. If a business can maintain social distancing, AND it is not in any of the categories listed in Executive Order 20-12, the business may continue operating while adhering to social distancing protocol.

Butte Valley FFA Corned Beef & Cabbage Feast

The Butte Valley FFA Chapter currently has 62 energetic members diligently preparing for leadership conferences and competition trips this year.  Although our chapter is small, we endure the same registration costs per member for these events as California’s large chapters, along with travel and hotel fees. Butte Valley FFA is one of the northern-most chapters in the state of California and at times travel up to 688 miles to a leadership conference or competition. We are also starting a new Agriscience Pathway with brand new classes including Sustainable Agricultural Biology, Agricultural Science, and plans for a Floriculture class on top of our established Agricultural Mechanics Pathway. All of which need funding for class supplies promoting hands-on education for our students.

As you can see, the students, parents, and advisers of Butte Valley FFA have committed to providing our members and students with the highest level of agricultural education possible. So, join us for the 1st Annual Butte Valley FFA “ Corned Beef and Cabbage Feast” on March 17, 2020, 5:30 pm at Butte Valley Community Center (Log Cabin) in Dorris, CA. The dinner comprises a yummy ‘luck of the Irish’ meal, corn hole tournament with custom FFA boards for the winners, a give-and-get drawing, silent auction containing some of our students’ projects, and dessert dash.  All proceeds will be benefiting our students at Butte Valley FFA.

Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society Seeks Support to Repaint One of Mills Historic Water Towers

The Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society is hoping to raise funds needed to repaint the 130 foot water tower on their museum property, a historical mill site. For many years, the water tower has been defaced with graffiti, and in a community beautification effort the organization plans to hire Handsome Hand Signs artist, Heidi Tullman (of Etna CA), to clean up and recreate the natural metallic rust and add a mural representing the Butte Valley Museum and Historical Society’s logo.

If you would like to help in the fundraising effort, please contact Rennie Cleland, board president at 530-260-1147.
