City Launches #OurGlendale Campaign & Offers Resources to Support Local Businesses

GLENDALE, CA – The City of Glendale continues to connect with the business community in an effort to understand and address needs as Public Health Orders and guidelines evolve during the COVID-19 pandemic. Several resources have been developed to provide marketing assistance to local small businesses and the launch of a new marketing campaign encourages consumers to support local small business in several ways.

“Our community must rally together to support local business now more than ever,” said Mayor Ara Najarian. Marketing efforts consist of several components:

A social media campaign to support local small business features posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn featuring restaurants, grocery stores and other retailers that continue to provide services and special accommodations for vulnerable groups. Additionally, it offers consumers creative ways to support their favorite small businesses, including beauty service providers such as hair and nail salons.

Emergency Marketing Resources are available online. Exempt businesses (ie. Restaurants, pharmacies, grocery stores) can download signs to let the public know they are still open. “Curbside Pick Up” signs were also created and have been placed throughout the City. “Curbside Pick Up" signs can be picked up in the Police Department Lobby (131 N Isabel St, Glendale, CA 91206), or can be downloaded online.

Restaurants that are still open for business can complete an online registration form to let us know about changes in hours, deliver & take out services, or specials. Restaurants are added to an online Restaurant Directory that is available to members of the public looking for take-out or delivery.

Weekly email updates are going out to over 4,400 subscribers detailing updates in mandates from local authorities, plus any new resources as they are developed and become available.

Businesses are encouraged to contact the City of Glendale’s Economic Development team directly to discuss challenges, concerns, or recommendations on how the City can help.

Important Information

The health and safety of the Glendale community will always be our top priority, and we continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely.

On March 16th, 2020, the City of Glendale issued a local emergency proclamation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to a number of measures already in place across the City to protect members of the public from risk of contracting the virus. 

The City has developed open lines of communications amongst local and federal health agencies in order to be ready to react appropriately, should the need for local mitigation responses become necessary. Amongst these alliances include the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, Center for Disease Control, Glendale Adventist, Glendale Memorial and USC Verdugo Hills Hospitals, the Glendale Unified School District, and Glendale Community College. Additionally, our Fire Department Personnel have been in constant contact with our Local Area C Disaster Management Area Coordinators in an effort to keep abreast of new developments, disaster declarations, and the implementation of any potential response, should it become necessary. 

We will continue to closely monitor and share all new developments and CDC recommendations with our residents and community partners in an effort to take additional actions as appropriate. We have been in regular communication with the LA County Department of Public Health through tele-briefings in order to understand any changes, their protocols, and updates to the spread of the virus.

As the City of Glendale continues to remain proactive in monitoring and responding to COVID-19, it is vital to practice every day preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Getting your flu vaccination – it’s not too late!
  • Staying home if you are sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough;
  • Regularly washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available;
  • Covering your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Contact your primary care physician if symptoms develop;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Limiting close contact with people who are sick;
  • Cleaning surfaces that are touched often;
  • Having an ample supply of essentials at home (including water, food, hygiene, medications, and pet food);
  • Planning for the possibility of business disruptions, school closures, and modifications/cancellations of select public events;
  • Practicing simple social distancing strategies that limit your exposure to others who may be ill (verbal salutations in place of handshakes and hugs, not sharing utensils, cups and linens, staying six feet apart from others at public events);
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
