Wills Wing Further Update
Note: This press release from the County of Orange is in response
to an earlier press release about the recent Coronavirus health order, which
officials acknowledge has created some confusion.
Public Health Order is NOT an Order to Shelter in Place
Todays order from County Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick is NOT an order to
shelter in place. It is not a lockdown. It is important for all Orange County
businesses to remain open while practicing social distancing consistent with the
Governors guidance. However, following State guidelines, all bars and other
establishments that serve alcohol and do not serve food shall close. All
restaurants and other business establishments that serve food shall close all
onsite dining. Pickup, delivery and drive thru services may remain open. It is
important for all Orange County residents to read the order in its entirety.
Unfortunately, the order as written caused wide-spread confusion. In order to
provide additional clarity requested by Orange County residents and businesses,
the County will be issuing an amended Health Officers Order.

We're trying to adapt to the 'clarification' and I expect we might
be able to operate at 50% capacity. I was planning on working full time anyway
but the main problem is that Wills Wing depends on several people who are at
high risk and for whom we don't have any replacements. For example, the guy who
makes airframes has been here since 1982. We don't have extra resources to
replace him and even the most qualified would struggle to match a fraction of
his performance. We'll get through this one day at a time.
