From the office of the President/CEO of Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce, Guy Occhiogrosso
Business Resources for COVID-19
To the business leaders in our Chamber network:
Like many of you, the Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce is closely following the updates regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus).
As a resource, we wanted to provide you with a toolkit to ensure you have access to the most current information.
From a local perspective, we are following the lead of these three organizations:
-Specific business guidance is being directed to DOH or CDC (links below)
–Peacehealth (UPDATED since original email & post)
Up to this point, the best advice we continue to see:
-Don’t panic. Please use standard advice during any flu season
-Please wash your hands frequently
-Personal health habits & awareness (don’t touch your face, cough into your elbow, clean/disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces)
-If you are sick, please stay home
-If your employees are sick, please work with them to work from home or use sick time
-If you suspect you have the virus, please call your primary care provider and follow their instructions before entering a medical facility
We (along with other local chambers) are attempting to organize a conference call with local experts specifically for the business community.
If scheduled, we will send out an email to members.
If you have any questions, please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
