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.

How can residents help support local business?

The Evergreen Chamber understands that the Coronavirus may have an impact for our businesses and the community. We have joined forces with Jefferson County Chambers to help our local businesses by launching these programs:

  • Take Out Take Over - As you know, the Governor announced further recommendations intended to limit the spread of COVID-19 across Colorado, including a 30-day closure of dine-in services, bars, gyms, casinos, and theaters.  Restaurants, shops, and caterers will still be able to provide takeout and delivery service. You can find what deals are offered by clicking the Hot Deals button below or find a list of businesses offering take out/delivery by clicking Takeout Take Over button below. We are continually adding to this list.
  • Shop Only Local - You can now buy gift certificates to MULTIPLE local merchants in just one location- *the Evergreen Chamber! Every Monday from 9-4 you can come by the Evergreen Chamber Office to pick up your gift certificates and a receipt. All money collected will go directly to the merchants.
