"I think that we're fortunate that we do live in a very smaller community compared to what New York is going through, so I think if people do their part here, I think we should be able to get back to normal," said Ramon Alatorre, a Santa Ynez Valley resident.

Police are actively patrolling the area to make sure the crowds do not get too big.
