REDDING, Calif. – It’s been almost a year since the state of California shut down businesses to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Diego Tantardini, who runs and owns Tantardini’s in Redding, said the constant restrictions have been tough. Due to the pandemic, they’ve lost a lot of business.

Tantardini said they've had to find new ways to keep business afloat, such as cutting their hours and even doing the delivery.

“I think it will but we don’t know when and if something else changes who knows,” said Tanardini. “We saw that the vaccine is rolling out but still nothing changed. We're still in the red tier, the system didn't change. We need to see what happens next.”

Anthony Eckhardt, an economics professor at Shasta College, said what will help businesses bounce back from these constant restrictions is eventually reaching that herd immunity.

Eckhardt said the best way to help businesses survive during the pandemic is to follow the CDC guidelines, shop locally, and adhere to a business' safety protocols.

“The way to support, in addition to going to the various industries that are opening back up, is to just be thoughtful of their situation,” said Eckhardt.
