COVID-19 Economic Support & Recovery

COVID-19 Economic Support and Recovery

We have created a list of resources that are exceptionally important to local businesses during these challenging times.

Buy Local

Local businesses are the backbone of our economy. As they begin to reopen, please remember to support them by shopping, eating and gifting local!

Resources to prevent COVID-19 in the workplace

Window Signs & Posters

We have created four different signs that you can install in your commercial windows during the COVID-19 crisis. The purpose of these is to inform your customers of your current operations while spreading a positive message in the community. All you have to do is download the one you want, print it on 8.5 x 11 size paper and display it in your storefront. We invite you to participate in large numbers so that the message of local shopping is diffused to our entire community.

NEW: We have also created posters that you can print and display in your store, restaurant, office, etc. These will help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
