During this time of adjustments in social events, work schedules, and travel, we encourage you to remember our many small businesses in Westwood Village, and to continue supporting them even if you cannot visit them physically.
Let’s all do our part to help our wonderful local businesses during this time of uncertainty. There are several ways you can continue to support our local Westwood Village businesses during this time, here are some ideas:
- Purchase gift cards to use at a later date
- E-shop locally — many little businesses in Westwood Village have some merchandise available online
- Reschedule non-essential appointments for a later date instead of cancelling
- Order delivery or curbside takeout and be generous when tipping
- Help spread the word by going online to leave a good review
- Remember, when you shop and dine local, even remotely, you invest locally.
- For a full list of Westwood Village businesses that offer delivery & takeout, visit: www.thewestwoodvillage.com/directory.

Cloth face coverings are REQUIRED for employees when they are around other employees or the public, and for the public when visiting essential businesses. But they are NOT a substitute for Physical Distancing and frequent hand washing. Cotton and other breathable fabrics are a good choice. Wash daily and replace face coverings with holes, tears, or if they do not stay on your face.
Now more than ever, it’s on all of us to practice Physical Distancing. Please only leave your home for essential services. Follow the Safer At Home Order and Stay Home. Get more info here: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/coronavirus/
