Dear Lompoc Valley Community:

This week, Coronavirus has taken a back seat in the 24/7 news cycle. Although serendipitously, the timing coincides with the slow return to normal for the Lompoc Valley Community and Santa Barbara County. Personally, this week I had three dine-in meals, partially to support our local restaurants, and partially because I can’t cook! The restaurants were not crowded and there was plenty of space to social distance. I felt very safe, and I think you would, too.

Many of our older community members, particularly those living alone, are not receiving the support they need during the coronavirus pandemic.
