March 16, 2020 — The City of Yachats continues to assess and monitor the rapidly evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation daily.
“The safety of our community and visitors are our highest priority,” said Yachats City Manager Shannon Beaucaire. “The city will continue to assess this evolving situation on a regular basis and implement additional measures as needed.”
While it balances the need for social interaction with social distancing and disinfection measures out of abundance of caution for the community and visitors, the City of Yachats is taking the following protective actions for our community, effective immediately:
• The Yachats Commons will continue to be open from 8 a.m. to noon. Disinfecting will occur every afternoon after the building is closed.
• The current revised schedule of morning classes will be followed. The city continues to recommend that individuals attending classes utilize the spacing guidelines of 3 to 6 feet, as recommended by the CDC.
• Yachats City Hall will be closed to the public. Team members will continue to provide essential services to the community and be present to answer phones.
• The Yachats Library will be closed to the public. The city is investigating options for a possible online ‘order’ with a pickup or delivery service. Updates will be available as feasible options are determined.
• The Little Log Church is closed to the public.
• All non-essential meetings in Yachats city buildings are cancelled until at least April 8.
• We strongly encourage you to sign up for our website alerts for the latest information, sign up for electronic delivery of utility bills and payment, and utilize digital and telephonic communications whenever possible.
• The Community Food Pantry has temporarily moved to the Yachats Community Presbyterian Church, 360 Seventh St. in Yachats, East Door. Hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“We encourage you to use the best practices for your own individual needs during this situation,” Beaucaire said.
