COVID-19 Update, March 13, 2020
It's been a interesting week at the Flagler County Chamber as we go through the same exercise as many of you to determine an appropriate response to Coronavirus and continue daily business.
The latest news:
As of Friday morning, the Florida Department of Health has announced 15 new positive cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Florida. At the time of the report, there were still no positive cases in Flagler County. To keep Florida residents and visitors safe and aware about the status of the virus, the Department is issuing regular updates as information becomes available.
Visit the Flagler County Department of Health for the most up-to-date and accurate information.
Specific guidance for businesses and employers can be found on the CDC's website.
The Chamber has also prepared this poster to help reassure your customers that our Flagler County business community is doing its part to ensure our workplaces are following health guidelines. Post this on your front door to show you are attentive to the matter.
INFO SESSIONS WILL NOW BE HELD REMOTELY.
After Gov. DeSantis released recommendations this morning to cancel large events (defined as more the 1000) people, many organizations with smaller planned events followed suit. To that end, the Chamber, in partnership with the Department of Health and the Emergency Operations Center, was planning to arrange several informational sessions for our cities and county businesses next week. Instead, we have switched gears are working to promote a live remote broadcast with experts instead.
Other event decisions are being handled on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about an upcoming meeting or event, please call the Chamber at 386-437-0106.
