Every Bliss Car Wash in Southern California is now closed because of the Coronavirus pandemic, said David Delrahim, CEO of Bliss Car Wash.
According to the company, the following actions are being taken:
While Bliss Car Wash locations are legally able to remain open, the company understands the importance of the Department of Public Health mandate that all individuals living in the State of California must stay at their place of residence and is shutting down all car washes.
Bliss Car Wash is continuing to pay over 60 hourly workers until April 19, 2020, when the county order is currently set to expire.
"Like most companies, Bliss Car Wash is experiencing a disruption in our business as we work to navigate the restrictions and guidelines put in place by local, state, and federal agencies to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As an organization, we are taking unprecedented actions to protect the health and safety of our employees and our community," stated Delrahim.
The CEO added, "The health of our Bliss team employees is paramount, and we must act accordingly to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community, which is why we have adopted a ‘stay at home to stay safe’ philosophy. We encourage all businesses to take similar precautions and to take care of their employees. I am grateful for the dedication of our employees who have embraced these changes in order to support the health and safety of our community."
