WELCOME TO THE MEDFORD CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Dear Valued Local Businesses:
In the midst of the Coronavirus public health crisis, we have had to make some incredibly difficult decisions in the best interests of our community. The best and most important thing we can do to slow the spread of the Conoravirus is to enforce social distancing measures, limiting the opportunities for individuals to contract the disease, even from individuals who may not be experiencing symptoms but who could be carriers.
Setting aside for a moment the grave concerns I have for the health of our residents, particularly our most vulnerable populations, I am also acutely aware of the impacts this pandemic and the resulting temporary restrictions have had and will continue to have on your business. It's my sincere hope that by putting bold measures in place now, we can effectively and efficiently slow the spread of the Coronavirus and return to business as usual as soon as possible.
In the meantime we need to take bold action to address the needs of and impacts to our community during this crisis. Earlier this week I declared a Local State of Emergency that will be crucial in helping us secure additional resources and funding and seek reimbursements for actions we deem necessary in addressing COVID-19 in Medford. Yesterday, after very careful consideration, I issued a supplemental order that, effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, all businesses and entities, both public and private, that provide personal care services are to be closed until at least April 6, 2020. This includes, but is not limited to, hair salons, barber shops, nail salons, tattoo parlors, massage parlors, gyms, health clubs, theaters, entertainment venues, and social clubs. You can find the full text of the order HERE.
Again, these are not actions I or the Board of Health take lightly. We understand there are very real impacts to our businesses, but they are necessary in addressing this public health crisis. By limiting the number of places where groups of people can gather and where the virus can easily spread on common surfaces, we’re doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, flatten the curve in terms of increases in cases, and help our health care facilities in their ability to serve those most in need of critical care. Many of our area hospitals are already reporting that they’re at or reaching capacity. It’s critical that we take measures to slow the spread of the disease, NOW.
Most importantly, I want to thank you for all of the hard work each of you dedicate to the Medford community. Our local businesses are some of the most important resources to our community both in terms of the goods and services you provide and in terms of the true value you bring to this city. We have a tough road ahead of us but we will get through it together.
