COVID-19 Update from the Duluth Area Chamber
March 19, 2020

Good morning Chamber friends,

Each day is an unfolding challenge in the wake of this COVID-19 pandemic. Be assured, my colleagues and I are attending to your challenges, suggestions and concerns. Thank you for keeping us apprised of your operations. We are working diligently, every day, to serve as your connecting point for information and resources.

We are taking action, with our team’s safety in mind, to ensure timely delivery of critical Chamber services to you. We remain available to you while our staff is working remotely.

I am working with the Minnesota Chamber to bring needed information, valuable connections, and local and state financial support to our members. Additionally, Governor Walz’s leadership team is utilizing our Chamber as their connecting point to the Duluth Business Community. Mayor Larson is also utilizing our Chamber as a primary connecting point to our business community. Additionally, I am working with key Duluth City Councilors to generate immediate support for our Duluth businesses. More information will be released as these initiatives develop.

We are here to serve you.

We are working for you.

Please continue to connect with me if you have questions, concerns or suggestions. I can be reached at or 218-740-3751.

In support,
David Ross
Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce
