OROVILLE, Calif. -- Businesses are still doing what they can to scrape by since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Places like Brushstrokes, in downtown Oroville, are still getting by despite the decline in foot traffic.

Brushstrokes is a local art gallery ran by a non-profit group called the Artists of Rivertown.

Everything there is made my local artists, but the pandemic is forcing a loss in manpower with volunteers.

"People are staying home. They're just not going out and I can't blame them. Everyone is concerned about that," said Docent Jea Hall.

She added, "...at least half of our docents have chosen to stay home because we are all volunteers, and the majority of us are retired. We're older, we're in that older age bracket."

That older age bracket Hall explained is in regards at-risk exposure with the coronavirus.

Hall told Action News Now  the landlord has been working with Brushstrokes with a reduction in rent. The gallery doesn't have salaries to pay, but still has to pay rent and utilities.

Anyone interested in making art, or even learning how to do so, Brushstrokes hosts classes. They also do parties and are open Wednesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm.

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
