South Siskiyou Essential Services Links

My goal with this site is to provide info and links for South Siskiyou County residents to “Essential Services” during the COVID-19 pandemic.  I’m starting with food and groups – since eating and connecting with our community are high on that list. 

Quick Links

  • Grocery Stores – This is a list of local grocery stores.  Some of them have made accommodations for seniors with special hours. And others enable you to shop online, stop by the store, and have your grocery order brought to your car.
  • Take-out Food Many/ most restaurants are closed.  But several still are cooking for take-out.  Support them!
  • Trash & Recycling – If you need to take trash to the dump or want to continue recycling, these links have you covered.
