The Chamber has been closely monitoring the development of and response to COVID-19 related to our community and businesses. Social distancing, while important to public health, will have a significant impact on our business community.

We strongly encourage the public to take easy and safe steps to still support our friends and neighbors during this time. Many businesses are temporarily adjusting their service delivery to accommodate these precautions. Call your favorite restaurants for delivery or take-out. Many retailers have an online store you can shop from. Almost all have gift certificates. Send an e-mail or call your friends and neighbors with a business and ask what you can do to support them.

All of them are taking extra precautions to ensure their customers are safe, healthy, and comfortable while still patronizing their business.

Love Athens – Support Our Businesses
