We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak, in particular the potential impact within our local community. There is nothing more important than maintaining a safe environment, and we will be taking all necessary precautions for the well-being of our entire shopping center community. This includes following guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and our local Department of Health.

Following the City of Fresno’s City Manager Emergency Order 2020-02 (“the Order”), all non-Essential Businesses at Fig Garden will temporarily cease operations..  In accordance with the Order, all Essential Activities, Essential Businesses, and Minimum Basic Operations will be permitted.  Further, restaurants and other facilities that prepare and serve food will cease on-premises consumption of food and will be limited to delivery or carry out services.  We expect all tenants to comply. The Order defines Essential Businesses, Essential Activities, and Minimum Basic Operations and is linked here. We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.

Here are the steps we are taking

  • The CDC guidelines on workplace cleanliness include an increased frequency of cleaning  highly touchable areas throughout a property. We are disinfecting high traffic areas within the center and parking garages.
  • As an extra precaution, we are working with our housekeeping vendors to increase the frequency and intensity of cleaning touchable surfaces using a strong disinfectant known to eradicate viruses.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed throughout the center and will be replenished or replaced as needed.
  • We continue to monitor the situation and the government’s response. We are committed to working with local, state and federal health officials to ensure an appropriate plan is in place to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Here is what you can do to stay healthy

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • If you do become sick with respiratory symptoms such as fever and cough, please stay away from work, school or other people to avoid spreading the illness
  • Keep a safe distance from others
