    The guide contains a variety of strategies to help small businesses be more resilient amid the

    continue to provide valuable products and services in their communities.”

    The guide includes sections on:

    • Protecting the health of employees and customers (not just as a response to the current

    crisis, but as an ongoing best practice whose importance will continue);

    • Community-level initiatives that can ease the strain on businesses (such as relaxing

    parking restrictions temporarily);

    • Technology-based solutions that can help businesses take some or all of their offerings

    online; and

    • Creative ideas for products and services businesses can offer that will both help

    businesses generate sales and help residents who are homebound.

    The guide contains targeted suggestions for event-planning businesses, nonprofits, fitness

    facilities, restaurants, arts and cultural institutions and more.
