Public Health Announcement Regarding Upcoming 34th Avocado Festival, April 19
The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce's number one concern is community. We have been working with the County to closely monitor the emergence and spread of the Coronavirus. Last night the county implemented that all gatherings of more than 250 people are directed to be postponed or canceled across the county. Although this ban is currently through March, California Governor Newsome conveyed it could foreseeably be extended. We feel in the best interest of the community, our vendors and volunteers that we cancel this event.
Public health officials advise washing hands with soap and water, avoid touching your face, staying home when sick with Coronavirus like symptoms and avoid contact with people who are sick. The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce will continue to coordinate with local and county organizations on any infectious disease response plan and will continue to closely monitor the Coronavirus situation.
