Three tips from our Chamber as we move toward economic recovery. #KeepItLocal365
Keeping Businesses Open
Dear Valued Chamber Member,

It is our job to do everything in our power to help businesses prosper and keep the economic environment healthy in our community. As we all work towards keeping our businesses open, we are asking all businesses and community members to follow the guidelines from the CDC, California Department of Public Health, and  El Dorado County’s Public Health Officer regarding social distancing and the use of masks to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Doing so today may keep us all safer and may prevent the need for more stringent limitations on business activities in the future.

We have  complimentary vinyl clings for businesses. You may stop by the Chamber to pick one up or we can deliver one to you.
