Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay at home order Mar. 19 for the entire state of California, to establish a consistent, state-wide coronavirus response.
The virus which was first detected in Wuhan, China last year, now has over 2,000,000 cases worldwide with 160,000 deaths.
Mayor Eric Garcetti extended the stay at home order for another month last week for Los Angeles residents.
The next date L.A residents can expect the stay at home order to be lifted has been set for May 15 which could be extended, however, depending on the level of coronavirus containment.
So far, Guillory and his team have delivered around 3,200 boxes to seniors in Compton and the surrounding areas.
Former Chargers Wide Receiver and Compton Native Mike Willie is also on the team helping to prepare and deliver food boxes.
“We have been working really hard to make sure that our seniors, our disabled veterans, in the cities of Compton, Lynwood, Paramount and Bellflower can receive the food and water they need to sustain themselves,” Guillory expressed.
All boxes have been properly sanitized to ensure anything delivered to seniors is free of bacteria and possible viruses.
Dereck Moore of BMOTW says his company is currently prepared to help businesses with sanitation services to protect their employee’s and companies during the coronavirus pandemic, and most importantly, moving forward.
“We go to facilities and disinfect the entire facility from top to bottom so it can be as safe as possible for people to come in and work,” Moore relayed.
