Updated: Jul 2
As coronavirus spreads throughout Wisconsin and our country, our local businesses have been thrust into a challenging position of finding safe and compliant ways of conducting business while keeping their company afloat- each sunrise becoming a fluid question mark of what updates that day will bring and what it means for them.
We are doing our best to keep tabs on what is happening with our local businesses as updates occur, and will continue to post them here as long as is necessary to get our country through this pandemic.
Businesses: Visit our COVID-19 Resource Page under Members for resources to help your business through this challenging time.
Please remember how critical your support is to our local businesses, and continue to patronize them whenever possible, both now and in the weeks to come to keep providing them with the necessary cash flow they need to stay in business. This can come in the form of buying gift cards for restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, or hotels for yourself, teachers, health care workers, or as gifts for weddings, graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc.
You could also consider buying meals to-go and delivering to elderly or immunocompromised neighbors and family who may not feel comfortable going out in public, or as a special treat for families working in health care, local police and fire departments, etc. Let’s make sure we are all doing our best to take care of each other in our small, close-knit community.
