There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the economy, social enterprises, small businesses and their millions of employees. While the future course of this pandemic is unknown, it’s important to focus on what is within your control.
There’s an overwhelming amount of information being distributed about the virus: who it’s affecting, what you can do, daily shelter-in-place updates and endless company statements on their COVID-19 responses. With that in mind, the goal of this updated information hub is to provide you with a consolidated list of resources for navigating your social enterprise through these uncertain times.
Of course, our main priority is the health of society. Please listen to the CDC and the World Health Organization for recommendations on taking care of yourself and your workplace while protecting at-risk populations.
