Mask Requirements: Understanding Executive Order 2020-147-Masks
Requiring the business community to enforce mask requirements (per EO 2020-147) opens up a wide variety of questions and concerns. In collaboration with local attorney Brad Lambert of Lambert Law, together we'll navigate this order.
AceHigh - Hand sanitizer alcohol spray. Can produce in bulk, but great for a customer-facing solution. Smells great and cleans the hands while moisturizing.
AeroDesign Services - Face Shields
BrandLure - KN95 Masks, 3-ply Surgical Masks, Non-medical Masks, Isolation Gowns, Goggles, Face Shields, Hand Sanitizer, Hand Sanitizer Stands, Acrylic Counter Shields, & Floor Decals for Social Distancing
Brava Biomedial - Full face shields that are comfortable, light-weight, adjustable, clear plastic, latex-free, and colorful. Face shields offer many advantages over cloth face masks--they protect the user's entire face, are comfortable (beard or no beard), you can talk on the phone while wearing one, and they are much cooler in the warm summer months. Whereas cloth face masks are hot and only protect those around you, face shields also protect you from other peoples' coughs, sneezes, and other droplets that potentially spread disease. Bonus: Unlike masks, your phone's facial recognition works while you're wearing a face shield!
BrightStar Care - Covid screening for your business, care giving for seniors
BMK & Associates - Disposable Masks, KN-95 Masks, Gel Hand Sanitizer, Disinfectant Spray Gloves, & Wipes

Clear to Go - Clear To Go helps employers manage risk, increase safety, and create effective responses to vulnerabilities in the workplace. Employees and vendors are screened with your questions through our mobile app. That information is linked with a CLEAR TO GO!™ Badge that can be independently verified.

Back & Better Campaign
We're tying the community back together and better than ever! Join our "Tying The Community Back Together" Campaign as your business prepares to reopen.
How it works:

- The Chamber Staff/Volunteer will drop off 2 pieces of ribbon and a lawn sign, then take a photo to share you on social media.
- When you're ready, take a photo/video of you tying the ribbon together, with your new sign, and share on your social media tagging @Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce!
- We will share your post and your business will get exposure, not once, not twice - but THREE times!
SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan
PPP Loans of $50,000 or less will be forgiven and a new simple, one-page loan forgiveness application was released by the SBA
Business owners who borrowed $50,000 or less through the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program are now eligible to receive forgiveness for the entire amount. The SBA created a simplified one-page form which removed some of the calculations previously required and allows for self-certification that the money was used appropriately. Form 3508S is available here and instructions for completing the application here.
Small business owners in all U.S. states and territories are currently eligible to apply for a low-interest loan due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Click here to apply.
Find more information on the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans at: SBA.gov/Disaster.
The SBA will work directly with state Governors to provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and non-profits that have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

Michigan Volunteer Website
Gov. Whitmer and MDHHS launched a new volunteer website, www.michigan.gov/fightcovid19, where trained medical professionals can register to serve their fellow Michiganders by assisting hospitals in fighting COVID-19. Other state residents also can use the site to find out how they can help in their local communities, give blood, donate money or needed medical supplies, or assist public health officials in tracking infections.
