Message from the California Hotel and Lodging Association:

“Hotel and lodging properties are considered essential businesses and, therefore, are exempt from the Governor’s order and may remain open. This has been confirmed via the California Office of Emergency Services as well.”

Comprehensive, Consumer-Friendly Website to Boost COVID-19 Awareness

One-stop State Website: www.covid19.ca.gov
California Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced the launch of a new Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public awareness campaign to provide useful information to Californians and inform them of actions they can take to further prevent the spread of the virus. The campaign is anchored by a new, consumer-friendly website, www.covid19.ca.gov, that highlights critical steps people can take to stay healthy and resources available to Californians impacted by the outbreak, including paid sick leave and unemployment assistance.

The Project

The Project It all started with a simple decision: To allow it to be okay not to be okay.

The goal is to provide tools and skills to identify and talk about mental health issues in a safe environment that encourages people to seek help they may need.

In hospitality we are family. Let’s do what it takes to make that family stronger and healthier.
