Dear Members
GLGA and our association partner, the Illinois Manufacturers' Association, have put together some interesting data concerning how other manufacturers are handling concerns over the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

IMA surveyed their membership on Monday and Tuesday this week to measure how manufacturers are reacting to this coronavirus. The survey's results and executive summary are available on the IMA website. The IMA also has a dedicated webpage that is updated constantly with new information, resources, and links to the Centers for Disease Control, Illinois Department of Public Health, and more. 
The US Small Business Administration is offering disaster assistance loans to businesses in the following Illinois counties:

Clark, Cook, Crawford, Edgar, Gallatin, Iroquois, Kankakee, Lawrence, Vermilion, Wabash, White, Will
