SVED is joining with many others in our community to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The situation continues to evolve rapidly and what seemed far-fetched just days ago becomes our new reality in the blink of an eye.
First and foremost, SVED is following the guidance from The CDC, South Central Public Health and our local health-care professionals and we encourage everyone to do the same. Secondly, SVED is dedicating its resources to fully focus on our existing business community to provide support and business retention services.
We are currently compiling a list of financial and other resources to make available online. We will also move to more regular email communications with business best practices, asset reallocation demands and supplies to help mitigate the impacts of the virus on business (when possible) and links to new resources as they become available.
Please share your virus response stories and keep us apprised of the impacts to your business in particular. This will help us quantify the impacts and facilitate making Blaine County eligible for state and federal aid.
Initially, we are encouraging every business to develop a business continuity plan and to conduct a three month cash flow forecast to help you understand what type of help to seek and how much.
We are fortunate to live in a such a strong community and we will get through this and we will do it together.
David, Harry and the SVED Board of Directors
