REDDING, Calif. – Crown Photos in Downtown Redding says it’s gearing up. But it won’t be business as usual.

Theresa Wood owns her own photo service along with Crown Photos and is getting ready to provide curbside services for her customers.

“I think it's a smart thing to do is to phase everything in we've all been hit with this pretty hard,” said Wood.

“To go back into this full swing doesn't sound like a good idea.”

Both Crown Photos and Wood closed its doors at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

“During the peak, we took time off we abided by the instructions of the governor to shelter at home,” said Jeff Engell, owner of Crown Photos. “If we had production to do we would come in but we wouldn't be available retail wise.”

Shasta County plans to enter phase two of the governor’s four-part re-opening plan on Friday.
Stores can open but only with curbside pick-up and must follow strict sanitizing guidelines.

Wood says they plan to clean, sanitize, and wipe everything down when a customer comes in and out. Both Engell and Wood also plan to wear masks when customers are in the shop.

Engell tells Action News Now he plans to keep these precautions in place as long as necessary

“We can’t take a chance, that's the problem with this virus,” said Engell. “It's easily spreadable and we don’t want to do anything to do that.”

While things are slowly opening back up, phase two does not mean offices, shopping malls, or any other high-risk places will open yet.

The Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency set up a tool kit for businesses on how to re-open safely.

Last week, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted to send a letter to Governor Newsom asking to re-open the economy.

It was a bright and breezy Friday for northern California, however the wind has been much stronger over Modoc County where a High Wind Warning is in effect through this evening. Stronger wind and cooler air will define our weather Saturday.
