Santa Clarita Ranked 23rd Best Mid-Sized City To Work From Home During Coronavirus  

Santa Clarita was ranked the 23rd best mid-sized city to work from home during the coronavirus pandemic, officials said Tuesday. 

With the COVID-19 outbreak still resulting in individuals working from home, Santa Clarita is the 23rd best mid-sized city to work at home, according to AdvisorSmith. 

“We analyzed 2,493 U.S. cities and considered five critical factors for working from home: availability of high-speed internet, housing prices and crime levels. Since many believe outdoor activities are safer during the coronavirus pandemic, we also considered weather conditions and the amount of parkland in each city,” said officials with the company.

Santa Clarita also had high scores for weather 93, safety 93 and housing 84 on a 100-point scale. 

Santa Clarita is among several other mid-sized cities that ranked in the top 30 best cities to work from home following Temecula at 21 and Fontana at 22, according to the research. 

This report comes just over a month after Santa Clarita was ranked the seventh best city to be stuck at home during the pandemic partially due to Santa Clarita ranking one of the safest cities in the country.

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
