Your Small Biz Update

April 3, 2020

I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and well as we all work to stop the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. Almost every business in America is challenged to weather mandatory closures, employee layoffs, and performing in this era of "Stay Home for Nevada". Many companies have been able to take some of their business to the internet, continuing meetings through video conferencing, and selling more online. For others, those designated as essential services, the challenge is much greater.

No matter what kind of business you are in, there is a chance you will experience some degree of economic impact as the crisis continues. In this issue of the Small Biz Update, you will find links to a few resources designed to help.

While our office remains closed to the public in support of social distancing, we are here to answer any questions about SBOP or doing business with the County, and we happy to help!

Stay safe and be well,

Adleen B. Stidhum
