Our businesses are back! Hooray! Well, sort of…
After Governor Abbott’s roll-back of our state re-opening amid rising cases of COVID-19, we are reminded about how we are all connected and everyone is responsible for the spread of this horrid virus. We are reminded once again that even while businesses are open, we all need to take care to wash hands, social distance and wear our face masks to protect others. This is an insidious disease that can strike anyone — so let’s all commit to to taking the basic precautions needed to take care of one another so we can get all of our businesses back to fully OPEN! Our local bars and breweries are really going to be hit hard again by this most recent closure — so let’s all pledge to lend them a hand by picking up or driving through for their products!
Gatherings larger than 100 persons are currently prohibited, but your Chamber events are generally smaller than that. We will continue to try to meet in person where at all possible, and will also commit to offering virtual alternatives for those who cannot responsibly join us in person.
Your Chamber partnered with other Montgomery County Chambers of Commerce to promote and support our local businesses as we all look to get back to our “new normal.” Check out the new video:
According to some of our friends in the financial sector, people in the US are saving money in the bank at a rate we haven’t seen in quite some time! Likely, most of us are hanging onto our savings instead of purchasing something new or taking vacations — which is understandable in today’s COVID-19 economy. We ask that you consider spending a few of those savings dollars locally — visit a local restaurant or retailer. Your visit will help stimulate your local economy and help to put fellow community members back to work.
