HOW IS COVID-19 IMPACTING MINNESOTA'S PORK INDUSTRY?

Minnesota is a national leader in pork production, but COVID-19 has been difficult on this essential industry. Read this Q and A with Minnesota Pork and Christensen Farms about how the state’s pork industry is handling the challenges of COVID-19. https://www.mnchamber.com/blog/how-covid-19-impacting-minnesotas-pork-industry
Quarantine If You Might Be Sick

Stay home if you might have been exposed to COVID-19

Updated July 7, 2020
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. People in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.

What’s the difference between quarantine and isolation? Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.

Isolation separates people who are infected with the virus away from people who are not infected.

Who needs to quarantine?
Anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

This includes people who previously had COVID-19 and people who have taken a serologic (antibody) test and have antibodies to the virus.

SMSU Gold Rush Days Update

The Marshall business community does a great job of welcoming new SMSU students to campus during Gold Rush Days each year as Mustang Movers. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions this year we are dramatically scaling back our plans for Mustang Movers to minimize contact that may cause disease spread. We hope to return to normal operations in future years and when we do we look forward to seeing many of you on campus again. Our new students always appreciate the help! We just aren’t able to make it work safely this year. Thanks for understanding.

Chamber E-Connection Guidelines and Policies
Newsletter Goals and Audience
The purpose of the Chamber E-Connection newsletter is to share our members' events with other business and community members. It is an informational newsletter and helps to promote our member businesses and their events. Each Friday, our newsletter is sent to over 1,800 individuals. Our separate emails are sent to the same list, but are held especially for our Chamber events and Business After Hours.

Newsletter Policy
E-Connection events are included based on requests from the member business. The following criteria are requested by the Marshall Area Chamber for event submissions:
  • Events flyers or submissions must be an actual event. We do not include sales or promotions.
  • Events can be included in the E-Connection for one week free of charge, and you have the option of adding one additional week for $20.
  • Submissions must be sent the Wednesday prior to that Friday's E-Connection to be included email chamber@marshallmn.org
  • All event flyers are for Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce members only.
