COVID-19 and San Diego’s Economy

Updated April 22, 2021 at 9:00 am

We’ve put together this COVID-19 resources page to provide guidance and support for San Diego businesses and residents.

Please review the San Diego County website for further guidelines.

San Diego’s Reopening Reference Guides

San Diego Regional EDC convened a broad coalition to develop reference guides to help local businesses reopen. These guides have been tested in focus groups, and align with local, state and national guidance. EDC recognizes that in order to get to a point where reopening guides such as these are useful, other issues, like childcare, must be addressed first. Download the guides below.

If you are an organization that would like to distribute to your vendors or membership, please contact Heather Dewis at hd@sandiegobusiness.org for access to a white-labeled version.

This program will also include a one-year forgiveness period for Business Tax Certificate penalties and surcharges when reestablishing delinquent accounts.
    • Commercial Utility Deferral: This program immediately helps business owners by suspending water billing fees, removing penalties for late payments, and ensuring there are no commercial account shut-offs.
    • The City and County of San Diego declared public health emergencies and stay at home orders are in effect. The County of San Diego Department of Health and Human Services is working to closely monitor any suspected cases to protect the public’s health and prevent the disease from spreading. Please refer to the County for the most up-to-date information.

    • Tax Assistance: The state of California Employment Development Department (EDD) is offering employers experiencing a hardship as a result of COVID-19 up to a 60-day extension to file their state payroll reports and/or deposit state payroll taxes without penalty or interest. A written request for extension must be received within 60 days from the original delinquent date of the payment or return.
    • Notice of Regulatory Relief: In furtherance of Governor Newsom’s emergency decleration and orders regarding the spread of COVID-19 virus, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is temporarily suspending enforcement of some specific legal prohibitions. This regulatory relief is designed to support the alcoholic beverage industry in its efforts to assist California in slowing the spread of the virus while assisting the industry in dealing with the economic challenges it is facing as a result.
    • Executive Order Halting Water Shutoffs: Governor Newsom issued an executive order protecting homes and small businesses from water shutoffs “while the state responds to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

    • Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA): The Federal Department of Labor’s FFCRA requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply through December 31, 2020. The Act expands paid leave benefits in two ways: emergency paid sick leave (COVID -PSL) and extended family medical leave (EFMLA) and provides employers with tax breaks designed to offset the costs of providing paid leave. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees can be exempt “when the imposition of such requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern”. Local law firm, Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton LLP has put together this guide to help employers understand the new law.
    • Tax Credit for Employers Subject to New Paid Leave Requirements: The FFCRA provides that employers subject to the EPSLA and the Expanded FMLA paid leave requirements are entitled to fully refundable tax credits to cover the cost of the leave required to be paid for these periods of time during which employees are unable to work (which for purposes of these rules, includes telework). Certain self-employed persons in similar circumstances are entitled to similar credits. Learn how to claim the credit here.
