Please join us on the call and bring your questions. We know businesses must continue to operate in the County and our goal is to help you navigate an uncertain environment. We also know that protecting your customers and employees is top of mind, and the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department provides these recommendations.
In addition, as you experience impacts or have questions regarding your workforce, the Employment Security Department has guidelines for workers and businesses as well as a reference guide to programs available in the state under different scenarios.
We’ll update you as soon as the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program goes into effect to assist small businesses that have been severely impacted by COVID-19. In addition, the Washington State Governor’s Office is compiling resources to support businesses, including the State Department of Revenue’s relief for taxpayers and insurance information from the Office of the Insurance Commissioner.
Bottom line, we’re always here to connect Pierce County businesses with the resources and information they need, especially in challenging times. If you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to Gary Wescott at (253) 798-6916.
