Last week, the Board of Supervisors approved $10 Million in CARES Act funding received by the County to be allocated for the COVID-Safe Restaurant Program. To that end, Orange County restaurants that prioritize customer safety and worker protections will soon be eligible for a $1,000 grant from the County to help with costs incurred from implementing the State’s guidance for reopening.
This grant program will help our restaurants that are being impacted by COVID-19 and also serve as an incentive to comply with state and local health guidelines.
Restaurants in Orange County with no uncorrected major violations from their last routine health inspection will be eligible for the County grant.
Stay tuned in the coming week for more details on the application and eligibility process!
