Watch list worries in Chico

CHICO, Calif. - While no one is happy about the state putting Butte County on the watch list, some people think it is necessary to beat the coronavirus.

“I feel horrible for these businesse losing their livelihood because, like I said before, we have all gone through this once before and now we all have to go through this again," said Chico local Renae Stramaglia.

“We just need this to be over so, for us to be on the watch list to take further steps, I think whatever we can do in the short run will help us in the long run, said business owner," Enzo Perri. 

Enzo Perri owns Celestino’s pizza in downtown Chico and he told me he’s already thinking about what changes he needs to make in order to survive this second shutdown.

“So I think it is going to be a change of hours probably right away," said Perri. "We are already closed Saturday and Sunday morning. We may decide to close for lunches in the foreseeable future just until things pick up as far as customers and businesses. We just need less cases."

Business owners aren’t the only ones struggling to navigate through these uncertain times.

“It’s kind of hard because obviously stopping everything again is going to make it harder to keep the everyday schedule," said Chico local Isabella Stramagila.

“Being in chico is a special place and not being able to enjoy it to its fullest, especially with friends and family and being able to enjoy those staples in chicoy,” said Chico local Lucas Crowley.

Now we just have to wait until saturday to see if Butte County shuts down and how local businesses will adapt.
