Thursday 19 March 2020
Dear Partner-

Our initial update for the day is a request for all businesses to complete the following survey being put out by the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) and the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED). The survey was created in conjunction with the Utah Economic Response Task Force (referenced below). The intent is to collect your insights regarding how to reduce the economic impacts for businesses affected by COVID-19.

Additional  resources for Utah businesses  are being evaluated and your input will help inform policy decisions. We will also collect and share your experiences on ways your businesses are already innovating to rise to these challenges.
 
This survey should take less than five minutes to complete. We need to have San Juan County represented in this data. If you are willing, please take the survey & share ( http://bit.ly/3b7RRCD ) !
