I would encourage you to be sure you obtain information from reliable sources. Each day we hear about more scams, especially regarding phone calls from individuals claiming to be collecting information in order to expedite relief/stimulus payments.
I would also encourage you to follow the Dinwiddie County Economic Development Page for additional resources and updates.
While all of our local businesses have been impacted during this time, it is encouraging to see that those who are able to, have been coming up with some very creative ways to operate. If your business is or has done something that you want to get the word out about, please share that with us.
Social Media has become a very powerful tool during this pandemic. The Chamber Board was just looking at how high the social media engagement numbers have jumped during the past 28 days. The number of people reached is up 443%. Actual engagements with our posts are up by 2103% (no that's not a typo). We have also gone up 960% in Dinwiddie Chamber Page Likes.
I know there is much uncertainty about the future but it is in these types of situations that we look to be our best. I pray for good health and safety for you all. #DinwiddieStrong
