Weekly Newsletter - March 18, 2020
From the Desk Of Mary Wilbur

March 17, 2020

Dear Tri-State Chamber Sponsors & Members-

I hope this finds you well, and that you are all finding ways to adapt to this unprecedented time. While we are all impacted in a variety of ways, we understand that it is you, our Members, and the Small Business Community as a whole, who are bearing the brunt of the financial burdens associated with what is happening.
With so many things changing so quickly, it can feel difficult to stay up-to-date. We know that many of you utilize our weekly newsletter to share information about your businesses. After some discussion, we’ve determined that this is not the best place to send updates about your individual changes, as they are bound to happen more rapidly than we can accommodate.
For the foreseeable future, our weekly newsletter will focus on information from the Healthcare Industry. Here, we will provide links to all area facilities so that you can access them all in one place. We will also share any government links that are appropriate for helping your business to navigate through this time, as much as we possibly can.
We encourage you to visit https://tristatechamber.com/ daily for links to our Members’ websites, where you can find the most accurate information about hours, closings, etc. directly from the businesses.
We also strongly encourage you to strictly adhere to changes in directives from local, state and federal agencies, so that we might contain the spread of COVID-19 as best we can.
And, most importantly, we ask you to support each other in every way possible.
Please consider this communication as notification that all scheduled Tri-State Chamber activities are postponed until further notice.
Stay safe!
Respectfully submitted on behalf of your Board of Directors,
Mary T. Wilbur
