RED BLUFF, Calif. - The coronavirus is costing a lot of businesses a lot of cash.

Owner of Hair Wrangler Salon in Red Bluff, Laura Adcock tells Action News Now that business has been steady.

She says she's noticed more of her clients choose to call to make an appointment, as oppose to walk-ins.

Adcock says she's not planning to cut her business hours and will continue to operate under her normal business schedule.

"Why not? It's not affecting us if you don't feel well, stay at home," says Adcock. "We gotta keep working, we gotta keep working to make money, so here we are, still working till it knocks us out."

The owner says she's waiving appointment cancellation fees for her customers and is taking extra steps to make sure everything is sanitized and clean.

Action News Now checked with Dave Gowan, president of the Red Bluff Tehama County Chamber of Commerce, and he says nearly 75% of businesses in Red Bluff remain open. The remaining 25% are either temporarily closed or are working from home. 

The Red Bluff Tehama County Chamber of Commerce says there are several ways that people can help local businesses during this time such as purchasing a gift card from a local business or ordering from local restaurants.
