Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates & Resources
The La Mesa Chamber is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation in order to provide our business community with the latest information and resources.
COVID-19 PLANNING AND RESPONSE EFFORTS
We have received communication on behalf of the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency regarding the COVID-19 virus that is changing our day-to-day life. In our effort to keep our members informed and provide you as much information as possible we are asking you to review all of the provided information.

It is important to know that while the CDC considers that this is a serious public health threat, currently the risk for the general American public remains low. That could however change at any time as the situation remains fluid. We are attaching the complete memo from the County of San Diego, as well as a Fact Sheet with all of the particulars about COVID-19. The Fact Sheet contains the symptoms, what to do if you have been exposed and more. 
Small Business Administration (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan
The SBA has signed emergency declarations with states including California. The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. The best resource for small businesses looking for more direct help and advice is the SBA San Diego District Office.
