The City of Temecula Supports Community’s “Fun at Home” Uplifting Posts

TemeculaFunatHome

The City of Temecula is committed to the health, well-being, and safety of our community.  We are facing this COVID-19 crisis with confidence and optimism. We are all in it together! 

Temecula Mayor James “Stew” Stewart states, “As Mayor, I’m incredibly inspired to see how quickly our community has transitioned to using technology – and, in some cases, not using technology to actually enjoy our beautiful surroundings.  People are creating fun memories with their families, taking walks, and making the best of this challenging time. As you explore the beautiful outdoors, we ask you to remember to continue the practice of safe social distancing of no less than six feet apart from other individuals.”

Despite a physical distance, the social bond is evident on social media through happy and fun posts of people within our community and throughout our neighborhoods at home, and it is inspiring!  Temecula families are posting about how they are enjoying their families, baking, cleaning out garages, gardening, or delivering food for donations.

Citizens are bringing hope and smiles amidst this worldwide crisis through social media, and the City of Temecula would like to highlight their Temecula FUN at HOME social media photos and acts of kindness posts each week throughout this COVID-19 pandemic. Tag the City of Temecula (be sure your post is set to public) with hashtags #TemeculaFUNatHOME and #TemeculaFUN, so the City can give you or your family a shout out on Thursdays!  The City will share your inspiring posts because they spark joy, uplift spirits, and showcase our resilient community.  These posts are wonderful demonstrations of the positive steps Temeculans have taken during this time of upheaval.

Please remember to follow the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control, and State and County Departments of Public Health, while finding ways to have FUN at HOME or in public.  This includes social distancing of 6 feet from other people, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, cleaning and disinfecting frequently used surfaces, and avoiding touching your face.  If you cannot post to social media, share your FUN at HOME photos with Brianna Borunda at brianna.borunda@temeculaca.gov.

The City is working closely with Riverside County health officials, as well as State and Federal governments, and our hospital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please monitor TemeculaCA.gov/coronavirus and the City’s social media for updates regarding COVID-19.
