Several Lompoc restaurants are offering alternative ways for customers to get meals as the community continues to deal with the ramifications of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

With the coronavirus causing negative economic impacts across the globe, the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce released a statement Tuesday encouraging people to support the local economy in safe ways. To aid in that effort, the Chamber compiled a list of several member restaurants that are continuing to serve food, as well as ways those restaurants are working to keep customers and employees safe.

Most of the options being offered by the eateries include curbside pick-up and other ways that limit physical contact between people.

The Chamber went on to recommend ways to support local businesses. Among them:

  • Buy gift cards for use later;
  • Call favorite businesses to see what kind of help they might need;
  • Order take-out or delivery;
  • While tipping is always a good practice, now is a time to be particularly generous;
  • Continue to support local nonprofits as their services will likely be in high demand; and
  • Offer delivery services to seniors or those at risk so they don’t have to leave the house.

“As more details become available, the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce will update the public via e-blast and social media,” the Chamber statement continued.

Along with declaring a local emergency, which made the city eligible for potential reimbursements from FEMA, the City Council voted unanimously to waive late fees and nonpayment shut-offs for utility customers, to close City Hall to the public beginning Wednesday, and to cancel all future committee and commission meetings — except for those of the City Council and Planning Commission — through April.

Multiple Lompoc dispensaries have reported increased business amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but the news hasn’t all been positive. Some shops have had to lay off employees and/or reduce staff hours, and some ancillary workers are losing out on opportunities due to the outbreak, but many of those within the industry have remained optimistic that the negative impacts won’t be long-term.
