The COVID-19 pandemic delivered a major blow to the nation’s food distribution system when the economy shut down in March.
While things began to improve, now health officials are warning that new spikes in positive cases may require considerations of closing businesses once again. So, what will it be like when the winegrape harvest begins later this summer? Will COVID-19 prevention requirements be different in the North Coast than in the Central Valley or Central Coast?
