Franklin County Businesses: Please complete this survey to have your voice heard!

To my friends in the business and non-profit community of Franklin County,
Gov. Wolf’s mandated closure of businesses and other activities is rightly intended to “flatten the curve” of the rate of COVID-19 infection. The governor has invoked his emergency powers under the law in order to enact these measures. 
However, the disruption to commercial activity will also have a profound negative impact as businesses and the people they employ struggle to weather the financial storm. We know that this virus causes serious risks to health, but poverty brought about by continued business stoppage will also have serious health consequences. The state is going to have to make the decision as to when and how to permit businesses and schools to reopen, it is just a matter of when. 

Your answers to these questions will assist me and other policy makers in weighing those competing risks. 
All answers will be confidential, you need not share the name of your business. 
This survey will remain open for answers through Thursday, March 26 at 5pm. 

Urgency is most important in completing these questions so we can consolidate the data to present to Harrisburg.

Thank you.

Monterey Pass Battlefield Museum will remain closed until Saturday May 2, 2020
