Over the past few weeks, coronavirus has taken the lives of thousands of Americans. But it’s also had dire impacts on the United States economy — delivering a devastating blow for hundreds of thousands of restaurants, stores and other small businesses across the United States economy.

Small businesses have been hit especially hard by the crisis, as they often have fewer resources to draw on during a slowdown, and many have been forced closed by public health measures. 

We want our business community and our clients to know that we recognize the impact the COVID-19 virus has had on you and your workforce. We are committed to continue sharing resources and information with you that can help you during this economic crisis.

To stay current with the latest information and resources available to you, we have put together a list below. We are here to help you in any way that we can.


We know your business is struggling to understand the ever-changing environment around you as we all struggle to maneuver through the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. This resource is here to provide expert guidance for South Sound employers so businesses like yours can comply with frequently changing rules and regulations.
