Our businesses are a critical part of our community. They supply our needs and serve as our gathering places. As state and federal directives call for limiting social gatherings in response to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, our Orange local businesses will begin to feel the impact to varying degrees. One thing we can be sure of: We can play a part in helping our businesses stay healthy, which in turn keeps our economy moving.
To our community, we encourage everyone to continue to shop Orange as much as possible. To our businesses, we want you to know that the following resources are available to you during the current COVID-19 situation:
The Federal and State governments have established several resources to assist businesses recover financially from the effects of the pandemic. If you are a business owner and are seeking information in attaining financial aid, please visit the following:
In addition, the Orange Chamber of Commerce is also available and committed to providing support and information for your business needs during this challenging time. To reach the Chamber, please visit their website at www.orangechamber.com.
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have an impact on our community, it is more important than ever that we reach and out support one another. The new state and federal recommendations to limit non-essential gatherings have caused many of our local businesses, including our restaurants and retail establishments, to close or limit hours. This will result in ongoing, significant hardships to many of the establishments we’ve come to rely on for day-to-day needs. The good news is that there is something we can do to help.
The Orange Chamber of Commerce has initiated a program that focuses on helping local retailers and their restaurants by providing information on their website of those establishments that are either open or providing curbside pick-up services. For more information, please visit their website at https://www.orangechamber.com/support-orange---shop-orange
As we all attempt to manage the needs of our families and develop new routines to deal with this evolving situation, we would like to ask that you support the Orange businesses that are staying open to serve our community. Shopping local will help speed our recovery, and ensure the businesses we depend on will remain open to serve Orange today, and long into the future. For 132 years, Orange residents and businesses stood together, no matter what the challenge. Together, we’ll get through this, too.
