How to Support Local Businesses During COVID-19


From the Office of Councilmember Barbara Bry : During #COVID2019, it is important to continue to support local businesses. Please see below for tips on how we can do our part in ensuring our neighbors, community members, and colleagues are supported through the closures.

  • Embrace take-out or delivery options
  • Buy gift cards
  • Check out a local store’s online presence
  • Postpone rather than cancel
  • Consider a donation
