As part of its work to assist local businesses prepare for reopening and recovery at the appropriate time during the coronavirus outbreak, Lake County will post a brief online survey to obtain input from business owners.
Survey participants may complete the survey by visiting elevatelake.com/survey beginning at 8am Tuesday, April 21. The survey will be available until 5pm Thursday, April 23.
The data collected through the survey will be used to better understand the current and expected challenges of the local business community, and ensure that the transition to reopening is handled strategically and with ongoing health considerations in the forefront, a news release states.
“As we continue to work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, we are also looking ahead at how best to support the reopening of closed businesses in a way that further protects the health of our residents,” Lake County Commission Chairwoman Leslie Campione says in the release. “We need the input of businesses, large and small, throughout Lake County to ensure that we consider any additional measures needed once the transition to the new normal begins. It is time now to strategically plan, and I encourage business owners to complete the survey. At the same time, we must all continue to remain vigilant in taking all of the necessary steps to protect the health of ourselves and our families.”
The county’s Office of Elevate Lake has been assisting local businesses with connecting to available local, state and federal resources during the pandemic. For additional information, business owners may visit www.elevatelake.com/COVID-19.
