Coronavirus Impact & Resources

A Letter from the Chamber Executive Administrator

We realize that the recent events regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic have created unprecedented circumstances for all of us.

Thank you for your commitment to the Chamber and for your patience as we sift through the multitude of ever evolving information and work to get correct information to you in a timely manner.

As you know, the crisis we are facing presents many challenges in our nation and it is important that we continue to support each other and our community.

Since last week, we have been gathering information from state, local and national resources.

Though it is overwhelming, I appreciate all the information that is being shared. Your Chamber has attempted to assimilate information from the Kentucky State Chamber, the US Chamber, the US Small Business Administration (SBA) and several others.

Our plan of action moving forward is to continue to try and be a resource for you and the community, to provide information - up to date, concise and easy to navigate on our website and through email and social media.

Our Chamber office will be closed to outside visitors, but will continue working to serve our members and community best we can. While there are many unknowns, we know one thing for sure – we are truly all in this together and we will get through it. In the meantime, take care of yourself, stay healthy and support our local businesses in the best methods you are able to and that are allowed right now.

May God bless you and keep you well.

Debbie Buchanan
Executive Administrator
