Update on COVID-19 impacts

March 17, 2020 4:44 PM | Connie Shipley (Administrator)

OSCC is keeping chambers up to date on information that has an impact on the business community as a result of COVID-19. 

  • Yesterday, Governor Brown announced a new Executive Order prohibiting on-premises consumption of food and drink, as well as gatherings of more than 25 people for the next four weeks. She also announced plans for a special session in relation to COVID-19 in the next couple of weeks.
     
  • The Governor also announced the formation of a Coronavirus Economic Council to discuss workforce and small business needs during this crisis. OSCC is part of that conversation and has provided feedback about the need for certainty and cash flow during this disaster, particularly to help local communities and families recover from the recession.
     
  • The Joint Committee on Coronavirus Response will be meeting tomorrow at 10 am to discuss needed supports for working families and local businesses as a result of COVID-19. The business community put forward an initial letter of requests. OSCC members are encouraged to listen to the legislative conversation through this link:
