Re-Opening Resources
With Virginia appearing to inch closer to a gradual reopening of our economy, we want you to know that your Chamber, along with the Roanoke Regional Small Business Development Center, is here to help.

We will be adding a new page on the Chamber website in the coming days with links to re-opening resources. In the meantime, here are just a few resources we've seen in recent weeks:

  • Gentry Locke is offering a webinar on May 12 about the latest COVID-19 guidance, returning to work, and PPP forgiveness. Register now.

  • Kroger recently released their Blueprint for Businesses, which builds off their COVID-19 learnings and provides actionable recommendations for businesses looking to re-open safely. Download the blueprint.

  • OSHA offers a wealth of information for businesses, including a free poster outlining the ten steps all workplaces can take to reduce risk of exposure to coronavirus. Download the poster here.

If your business has found or created information (videos, info-graphics, etc.) with actionable information you believe will help others navigate re-opening, please share this with our team. You can email Austin here.
One Month of Chamber Chats
It's hard to believe we've already had a full month of Chamber Chats, but we shared our inaugural edition in last month's Chamber News!

You can now watch all of our past Chamber Chats on the Chamber website.

Would your business like to be featured? Or do you know a business who might be interested?

Email  Eric  and let him know.
