COVID-19 Business Resources
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, China, and reported by the World Health Organization on December 31, 2019. Around the globe, the Coronavirus is receiving heightened attention for infecting tens of thousands of people. The respiratory illness caused by a Coronavirus is thought to spread between people who are in close contact with one another (about six feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land on common surfaces or in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
The Evergreen Chamber understands that the Coronavirus may have an impact for our businesses and the community. Below are resources for advice on how your business and family can plan for and respond to the virus, along with information on the disease. We will update this page as information is made available.
