Open & Safe: Information & Resources for visiting San Luis Obispo. Learn more.

As we continue to social distance and shelter-in-place throughout San Luis Obispo, we are doing our part to slow the spread and flatten the curve. And, it’s still critical for us to continue to do our part until local, state and national officials lift the shelter-in-place order and re-open the economy.

Despite being isolated SLO locals continue to create and share new innovative ways to connect and support one another through these uncertain times. We are #SLOTogether.

Giving back in a time of need – #HelpTheHelpers.

A San Luis Obispo favorite, Lincoln Market & Deli, is giving back to the community by “helping the helpers.” They are putting smiles on the faces of SLO’s frontline workers with a hug in the form of a sandwich and boosting morale all around.

“We just feel lucky to be open and operating and we wanted to give in some way without it being about making money in any way – so we thought the easiest way to do that was to just give,” Lincoln Market & Deli.

Local SLO business works to protect our frontline workers by upgrading their masks.

Poor Richard’s Press and Safran Seats are working to replace defective elastic bands on face masks for a local Central Coast hospital. The masks, delivered from the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, were found insufficient when healthcare staff found the elastic bands to be defective. After one week, repairs to 175,000 masks have been made.

Reminding the SLO community that we are #SLOTogether.

Have you seen the big orange signs around town? The City of SLO designed signs and posters to help direct people to the City’s website for COVID-19 related information and to share positive and encouraging messages that remind us that we are all in this together!

You can download the creative files directly from the City of SLO website or contact The Sign Place for professional printing. The Sign Place is offering special pricing on large prints.
