As of Tuesday morning, eight Winters businesses have received a “Certificate of Compliance” in Yolo County’s Green Check Program. The certificate recognizes and endorses business owners who are making efforts to be in compliance with the Yolo County and State COVID-19 health and safety requirements and guidelines. 

Yolo County launched the voluntary ‘Green Check Program’ on Aug. 27 with the intent to encourage and publicly recognize local businesses that are helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 among staff and customers, and to inform Yolo communities of COVID-19 compliant establishments in their cities.

Winters businesses currently listed on the Green Check Program page as having received their Certificate of Compliance include: Buckhorn Steakhouse, El Pueblo Meat Market & Taquera/Deli, Hooby’s Brewing, Putah Creek Cafe, Steady Eddy’s Coffee House, Winters Healthcare, Winters Pizza Factory and Yolo Federal Credit Union.

Other establishments in Western Yolo County include: Road Trip Bar and Grill (Capay), Seka Hills (Brooks), Bogle Vineyards (Clarksburg), Seka Hills (Clarksburg), Shear Intuition Salon (Esparto), and The Ravine on Sixteen (Esparto).

“The creation of the Green Check Incentive program provides us with a way of recognizing and thanking the many businesses in Yolo County that stepped up and provided a safe and healthy environment for their customers and employees in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Gary Sandy, Chair of the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. “The creativity, responsiveness and innovation put forth by so many of our Yolo County businesses have been nothing short of extraordinary.  We want to thank them and provide their customers with the confidence that when they enter these businesses they can be assured that health and safety are a top priority.”

Businesses who apply for the incentive program say their establishment is COVID-19 compliant by implementing and following a set of guidelines that include: face covering requirements, proper signage and distribution, personnel training, handwashing and hand-sanitizing protocols, cleaning and disinfecting protocols, measures to maintain social distancing, and measures to prevent unnecessary contact. 

Businesses that have been certified as compliant will receive a certificate from the County featuring a green check mark and the text “Certificate of Compliance.” The certificate acknowledges that Yolo County has identified the business as following the guidelines and requirements set forth to help keep their staff and the public safe from the spread of the coronavirus.

These businesses will also be featured on the County’s Green Check Program webpage. Businesses must continue to remain compliant with the COVID-19 guidelines in order to remain in the program.
