A Santa Maria resident created an Instagram page letting people know which restaurants are still open for business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Veronica Sahagun started the page called "Santa Maria Still Open" in response to coronavirus concerns.

As of Friday, Sahagun's page has more than 500 followers.

"Growing up in a small community, I think it's important, especially at a time like this, to help one another and it's just heartbreaking what this community is going through," said Sahagun. "I think the least we can do right now is help local businesses just remain so that once we do get over this hurdle, we'll still see them there."

Sahagun says local restaurants staying open can message her through Instagram for a shout-out.
