COVID-19> What you need to know
Jim Paino, Executive Director for the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce and Cannon Beach Mayor Sam Steidel wish to share with you how Cannon Beach will be moving through the phases of re-opening.
A majority of our small community of 1700 residents are in the vulnerable population. This is concerning and therefore the health and well-being of everyone in Cannon Beach is of the utmost importance. Our commitment to following health and safety procedures through these phases are for the protection of everyone. Be they our residents, workers, or visitors alike.
Our businesses have been working hard to implement new procedures at their shops, restaurants, and lodging facilities. Keeping your safety in mind. Many of our local shops will be requiring patrons to wear personal protective equipment while in their shops. (This is their right as owners of private property.)
We ask and encourage everyone, resident and visitor, to follow the appropriate safety measures while in public in Cannon Beach. Remember the mask is a courtesy to others as much as it is for yourself.
If you don’t feel comfortable with the safety measures in place we would ask you to save your visit to Cannon Beach until we have cleared all the phases of reopening. If wearing a mask is difficult for you or if you feel that these phases don’t adequately protect you from the virus, please continue to shelter in place for your well-being. We will be here when you are ready.
These are trying times and we all need patience, kindness, and understanding to get through this transitional time.
We all love Cannon Beach and want to help keep everyone safe.
Cannon Beach, there is magic here...
