The County of Nevada Office of Emergency Services (OES) is offering local small business owners, with 25 employees or less, masks and hand sanitizer at no cost. This personal protective equipment (PPE) has been made available to California small businesses through the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) in collaboration with the Office of the Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA).
PPE will be available for pick up in Western Nevada County at two locations: the Nevada County Contractors Association and the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce. In Truckee, small businesses may pick up PPE from the Truckee Chamber of Commerce.
To request PPE, small business owners must complete an online application in advance to apply, click one of the application buttons above.
After completing the online PPE request form, small businesses may print their confirmation email, or display their confirmation email when picking up PPE. Small businesses may send a family member, volunteer, or employee as a proxy to pick up the protective equipment. Please complete one form per business only. Hand sanitizer and surgical masks will be available while supplies last.
The Environmental Health Department recognizes the severe impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on local restaurants, bars and breweries, body art & tattoo, swimming pool and spa, and organized campground facilities. The inability to operate and remaining in compliance with the State of California Public Health Orders for public health and safety during COVID-19 which continue today, prompted the Environmental Health Department to work with the County Executive Office’s office to create a one-time permit fee waiver. The request was approved by the County Board of Supervisors on October 13, 2020.
Through an application process, owners and operators of Nevada County restaurants, bars and breweries, body art and tattoo facilities, swimming pools and spas, as well as organized campground facilities may apply for a waiver of permit fees for the upcoming Fiscal Year, November 1, 2020 through October 31, 2021. The waiver application process opened October 23, 2020 and will close on November 30, 2020. Businesses are encouraged to apply early and complete all areas on the waiver application form.
