Tidbits for Business
New Rules, New Resources

On Friday, Governor Lamont announced the state's latest effort to Flatten the Curve; closing non-essential businesses as of Monday 3/23 at 8 p.m.

To support this initiative, any essential business in Greater New Haven can register on the Visit New Haven website here and the listings will appear by clicking the Essential button on the Shopping page.

Businesses considered essential during Stay Home, Stay Safe are not our usual tourism partners, so we ask you to share this information with friends, family and local business so we can provide you with the information you need.

Please support local businesses who remain open or offer remote ordering (online, phone, mail, etc.) with pickup and delivery.

Here is an article from Revolution with their favorite online professional development websites. There are many more providers of these services than those in the article but it will serve as a starting point to find the best courses for yourself and your employees.
