Stay at Home Order Modified in Ventura County

It feels like we’ve been told to stay inside our homes for years now. But, it’s really only been a few weeks. Even so, millions of people want to resume something close to a normal life. They’re itching to get back to work. Our 422 cases county-wide sit well below our neighbors to the southeast. As of the writing of this post, Los Angeles County reported more than 12,000 cases of COVID-19. Partly because of the relatively low reported cases, Ventura County plants to modify their stay at home order to start getting us back to some semblance of normalcy again. And start putting people back to work.

Under the newly modified Stay at Home Order, some non-essential Ventura County businesses, golf courses & small public gatherings may open back up with certain restrictions put in place.

Ventura County Stay at Home Order Modified

Search Ventura County homes for saleDr Robert Levin, Public Health Officer for the County of Ventura, announced a modified Stay at Home Order in effect as of Sunday, April 19th. Restaurants may continue to provide take-out or delivery. But their in-dining facilities must remain closed for now. Grocery stores, banks and other essential businesses may remain open to the public as well.

Non-Essential Businesses

Under the newly modified order, non-essential businesses that don’t interact with the public may open back up. However, they cannot allow more than 10 people at a time inside their office in any 24 hour period. Any retailer or non-essential business with more than 10 people that interacts with the public must remain closed for now.

Public Gatherings

The old order allowed no public gatherings of more than two people unless they happened to live in the same household. The newly modified order allows public gatherings as long as you stay inside your motorized vehicle and the gathering takes place at an outdoor venue. Each vehicle cannot contain more than five people and must stay at least six feet apart with their windows rolled up. No one will be allowed to leave their vehicle while the gathering takes place either.

Guns and Golf

Did you purchase a gun before March 20th? You may now pick it up. Golf courses will be allowed to open up. However, no carts allowed. Again, keep social distancing in mind when playing through. Bike and car shops can also begin in-person sales provided they continue to practice good social distancing.

How Long?

The modified Stay at Home Order continues in place until May 15th. However, he plans on overlooking data about new COVID-19 cases in a couple of weeks to see how we’re doing. If we continue to practice safe social distancing and reported cases taper off or diminish, even more restrictions will be lifted to allow more businesses to open up.

Dr. Levin encourages anyone over the age of 70 as well as anyone with health issues to continue to stay at home as much as possible. If you feel ill, stay home and isolate yourself from others living in your house to contain the spread of any virus. We are not out of the woods yet. We all still need to wash our hands for at least 20 seconds a day, several times a day. And continue to disinfect areas of high use in your household (counters, doorknobs, etc) on a regular basis.

Ventura Meal Services During Stay Well at Home Orders

Officials shut down access to all Ventura beaches and parks as of April 1st. Schools shut down their on-site classrooms and transitioned to distance learning (from home) last month. They plan to stay that way through the end of the school year. However, some students relied on the school’s cafeteria to eat one or two meals per day. With the shutdown, this makes it more difficult for them to receive the nutrition they need. Fortunately, the City implemented a few Ventura meal services during the governor’s “Stay Well at Home” orders. Senior citizens also can be taken care of at this time through these meal services.

During the governor's "Stay Well at Home" orders, children and senior citizens can still utilize Ventura meal services for delicious, nutritious food.

Ventura Meal Services

Kids

Search Ventura County homes for saleVolunteers and staff of the Ventura Unified School District work hard to put together nutritious meals for kids ages 1 to 18 each week. They provide both breakfast and lunch each day for children in need in the community. Meals can be picked up between 11:30 am and 1 pm Monday through Friday at any of the following six locations:

  • Atlas Elementary (760 Jazmin Ave in Ventura)
  • Data Middle School (2060 Cameron St in Ventura)
  • Montalvo Elementary (2050 Grand Ave in Ventura)
  • Sheridan Way Elementary (573 Sheridan Way in Ventura)
  • Sunset K-8 School (400 Sunset Ave in Oak View)
  • Will Rogers Elementary (316 Howard St in Ventura)

During Spring Break (April 6th to 10th), this service is only available during normal hours on Monday, the 6th. At that time, you may pick up five breakfasts and five lunches for each child to get them through the week. Regular meal distribution continues next week on April 13th.

Senior Citizens

The Ventura Ave Adult Care Center usually provides nutritious meals for our community’s senior citizens. However, due to COVID-19 concerns, it remains closed to the public through April 12th. However, staff continues to make these meals for pick-up (11 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday) as well as home delivery. For more info, please contact the center at (805) 648-3035.

Another resource available to our senior community is through the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging (VCAAA). Anyone aged 60 or older may contact the VCAAA to receive two weeks of food delivered straight to their door. This includes fresh produce, canned food, dry goods, and even one roll of toilet paper per person. They also offer a no-contact pick-up service where staff loads up your car curbside. Simply contact the VCAAA at (805) 477-7300 to arrange pick-up or delivery.

Together, we can get through this. We WILL get through this. If you need a little help in the meantime, don’t hesitate to ask.
