The Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Lakeville, Burnsville, Hastings and River Heights Chambers is excited to continue the 'Real Time Solutions' webinar series! These are complimentary Live 30-minute webinars to help your business navigate the questions, and new normal, related to the COVID-19 epidemic.

2020 has posed challenges for all of us, and the Dakota County Sherriff's Department is no different. Hear from Sherriff Tim Leslie on how the Sherriff's department is adjusting in the midst of a pandemic and responding to a request for change.

Great Local Patios
Check Them Out Before the Cold Comes!
Have you found yourself saying to someone, “where do you want to eat? I just want outside somewhere.” During the great weather as well as this crisis, everyone wants outside.

These photos were taken mostly by us in the closed hours of places you probably aren’t thinking of. We only included those who have a patio so the list does not include all restaurants. Apple Valley Chamber appealed to the City 3 months ago to allow for restaurants (and ultimately other industries) to be creative with their properties for dining, patios, drive up window lines, pick-up and signage that normally is against ordinances. At that time, the city said, “whatever we can do to help businesses during this crisis, we will.” We told the City that when the crisis is over, we will help get enforcement back to normal. Be sure to eat outside and BOOKMARK THIS LIST.

Recap: Mask Dispersal to Businesses
The Apple Valley Chamber was given 24,000 masks from DEED to disperse to local businesses to use for their clients and customers. Last week, we picked up the masks, set up shop outside our office building, handed them out and ran out within a matter of hours. Everyone was very grateful, and one lady even cried she was so thankful. We do not know if or when we will get any more masks but we will keep you updated.

Thank you to the following members who volunteered to help Ed and Fabiana hand out the masks: Chamber Chair Tasha Wells (Coldwell Banker Burnet), Sean Alter (Thrivent Financial), Will Elsftrum (Elsftrum Consulting) & Thomas Robak (Sterling State Bank).
