Coronavirus (COVID-19) Small Business Guidance and Loan Resources
Health and Government Officials are working together to maintain the safety, security, and health of the American People. Small Businesses are encouraged to do their part to keep their employees, customers, and themselves healthy.
CORONAVIRUS: What can we all do to help?
To help our area business community that includes a substantial Hispanic workforce be prepared and respond responsibly to the coronavirus outbreak we have put together a toolkit in Spanish that includes video and information you can print and distribute to your employees.
As more individuals become affected in our market and around the country, and news stories contribute to increase the concern, it is important to take the time to learn how we can all help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 and minimize its long term impact to our work, school attendance, meetings and daily routine.
The Hispanic population in Hampton Roads is estimated at 8%, this is at least 100,000 people.
We are ready to work with our local government agencies, and national organizations to inform our businesses members and Hispanic community at large of any developments and strategies to protect and avoid disruptions.
The content we present here has been created by HCC COVA based on information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other resources, to learn more about how employers and employees can prepare for and address the impacts of the Coronavirus.
