Lodi Chamber Closure
The Lodi District Chamber of Commerce has decided to do our part and close the office to the public in order to maintain the safety and health of our employees. We are monitoring the situation closely, and are proactively searching for ways to communicate resources or tools or solutions to our community during this time. If you need to contact any of our staff, you can find their emails here. While the news and constant updates from different government agencies can seem overwhelming and dire, we are trying to focus on some of the positives that come from being self-quarantined - like spending time with your families and reminding ourselves what to be grateful for.
That being said, we are also aware of the hardships this pandemic is bringing on our businesses. And to be frank, us included. We, like most small businesses in the United States, cannot afford to lose revenue or have the cash reserves to outlast this pandemic for months. It is a very uncertain time, but we are hopeful that by all of us doing our own part these next two weeks, we can flatten the curve and get back to business as usual SOONER.
In the interim, here are some tips for supporting small businesses, links to the latest Small Business Disaster Loan relief, and some fun "inside" activities for families and kids. The Lodi District Chamber is dedicated to being a catalyst for business growth, a convener of leaders and influencers, and a champion of the community- in whatever form these three C's manifest. Thank you, Lodi. Together, we can get through it.
