CITY OF YACHATS PUBLIC INFORMATION UPDATE
April 8, 2020
The community has continued to band together and support each other as we all deal with the changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. As of today, there are 1,239 positive cases in Oregon, 4 of those in Lincoln County. Your efforts in physical distancing and following the recommendation to Stay Home. Save Lives. is working to flatten the curve slow the spread of COVID-19. We must continue life-saving physical distancing even in the nice weather.
Things to Do
In the days ahead, we are going to experience sunshine and warm weather. Understandably, many of us will want to go outside and feel the warmth of the sun. We still need to stay home and limit travel. But going outside is good for you and there are safe ways to enjoy the sunshine.
- If you’re able to maintain physical distancing, enjoy the outdoor areas of your residence.
- Have an outdoor picnic at your residence with the people you live with.
- Have a virtual picnic with friends.
- Get things done at home such as gardening or washing your car.
- Open doors and windows to get fresh air while remaining inside.
- Enjoy solo physical activities or those with members of your immediate household such as walking, biking, running or rolling.
Please Be Cautious
We all need to do our part to keep our momentum going in flattening the curve. It’s still important to continue physical distancing and remain six feet away from others. When enjoying this beautiful weather, please don’t:
- Participate in group sports
- Hike on crowded trails
- Attend social gatherings
- And, please don’t go out if you’re sick.
Continue to reach out to your neighbors by phone or email to make sure they have what they need – and to just say hello. Wave to your neighbors from a distance. Let them know you’re happy to see them. This is a challenge. It is difficult. But it is what we need to do, together, to continue to support our community in getting past this.
And together, we will get through this.
Thank you Yachats,
Shannon Beaucaire, City Manager
