To help businesses, services, and community agencies that are open support physical distancing outside and inside their buildings while also accommodating increased demand for delivery and pickup services, the City is offering two programs: Temporary Parking Pick-up Zones and Curb Lane Pedestrian Zones.
Each location will have unique conditions that will be assessed carefully by the City to develop the most appropriate solution. In some cases, City staff may be able to suggest alternate line-up configurations to alleviate crowding concerns. In other cases, a temporary curb lane closure may be the most effective tool.
All open businesses should read the tips for businesses offering curbside pickup and follow advice from public health experts by planning to manage physical distancing for customers and employees, both inside and outside their stores; support proper hand hygiene; keep surfaces and objects clean; and find ways to limit contact between people.
