South Bay by Jackie.com COVID-19 Website Announcement

March 15, 2020

For over eight years, South Bay by Jackie.com has kept the community informed of all the incredible leisure activities and special events taking place in our seaside bubble. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re temporarily switching gears to act as a clearing house for hyper-local news.

We’re receiving information from multiple, reliable sources. In order to distribute all of this information in a timely manner, we’re posting several announcements to the Daily Blog page each day.

Every South Bay event scheduled through the end of April has been cancelled or postponed. Just in case anyone has been living under a rock the last few weeks, we’ve kept all calendar events posted to the website with a CANCELLED or POSTPONED notice in the title line. There are still several events scheduled through the end of spring, which will be reevaluated by the host organizations in the coming weeks and we’ll update the website as we receive that information.

In addition, The South Bay Show podcast will have the same focus for the foreseeable future. We encourage anyone that wants to share information, to call in to the show at 714-242-5288 every Thursday morning between 8 and 9 a.m. We still need to communicate! So don’t be shy, if you have something to share, call us, we’re here for you!

We’re all in this together and we’ll get through this together, even though we can’t physically be together. #SouthBayStrong
