West Covina is located about 18 miles outside of the city of Los Angeles. The location gained some attention after the TV show “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” was set and shot in the area. Fans of the show can visit the area to see locations used in the series, but even those who are not a fan of the show will find something to love about this growing city. 

Although it’s not as old as some other California cities, West Covina has a unique history. The city was incorporated in 1923 as a way to prevent the city of Covina from establishing a sewage farm in the city’s limits. The residents of the area banded together to block the sewage facility from being built and maintained local control. Instead of a sewage farm, the area continued to support walnut and orange groves for the next several decades. 

The city has come a long way since its incorporation, but the community still comes together, even in uncertain times. This was demonstrated in April when West Covina handed out free gloves and masks to residents for protection against the Novel Coronavirus. Donations of the materials were made by local residents and charities to provide these supplies to residents who were in need after a mandate was put in place requiring face coverings when leaving the house. Additional supplies were also donated to hospitals in the area. 

Supplies donations aren’t the only way residents are helping out locally. Many people in West Covina are doing their best to support local businesses that have been hit hard by the virus by purchasing gift cards and ordering takeout from local restaurants. The citizens of West Covina are doing what they can, but they’re eager to regain some semblance of normalcy. Fortunately, the state is moving forward with Phase 2 of its reopening plan so residents will soon have the opportunity to support more of their favorite shops. 

As the state moves forward with Phase 2 of its reopening plan, COVID-19 is a serious concern for business owners in the area. Customers may be excited about businesses opening back up but they still want to know companies are following safety guidelines established by the state. More than that, customers want to be reassured business owners are doing everything possible to limit the spread of the virus. 

As of May 6, West Covina only had 151 cases of Coronavirus. Compared to some areas, these numbers are low, but everyone has to work together to keep these numbers from rising. One way for business owners in West Covina to do that is to make sure they’re properly cleaning their stores before reopening. The best way to ensure a space is sterilized is to enlist the services of a professional cleaning company like EcoBear Biohazard Cleaning Company

Professional sanitization of your store will eliminate any infectious virus that has been lingering on your counters and surfaces. Through the use of medical-grade chemicals, the Eco Bear sanitization process eliminates dangerous bacteria or viruses. This renders any previously contaminated space safe, as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

After professional cleaning is complete, you can confidently let your customers know you’ve prepared for reopening as thoroughly as possible. In these times of uncertainty, we must all do our part. Make sure you’re doing everything you can to protect your customers and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
