**Eat & Support Local Businesses in Franklin County during COVID-19 Pandemic**

The COVID-19 pandemic is generating uncertainty and challenges throughout the nation.  Gov. Roy Cooper has issued an executive order, which took effect at 5 p.m. on March 17, 2020, closing all bars and restaurant dining rooms in North Carolina except for takeout and delivery orders.
This decision will have a severe impact on restaurant and bar owners in our Chamber family.  We encourage you to support those Chamber members during this crisis by continuing to patronize their businesses.  You can do so by calling in take-out orders, having meals catered to your house or your business, and using these businesses for special orders.
We also ask that you please inform your friends, family, and neighbors that, although restricted to take-out, drive through, or delivery, these businesses are still open. A listing of your Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce partners affected by the Governor’s executive order is provided below.

While the hope that the coronavirus outbreak will soon be over, it will continue to create hardships among all industries and businesses, as well as public and private schools and universities, entertainment venues, athletic events and civic functions for the foreseeable future.  Many, but not all, of our members rely on social media to advise customers and clients about their business activities.  Your Chamber staff is attentive to our member’s desire and efforts to keep their customers informed.  We will work in partnership with our members to post information about their businesses.  We encourage you to visit the websites of our member businesses for updates about the effects that the measures necessitated by COVID-19 have on them.  We too will post member information on our Facebook page, as well.  For businesses that do not have a website or Facebook page, we encourage you to please let us know if we can assist in keeping the public informed by posting information on our Facebook page.

Please contact us here at the Chamber 919-496-3056 if we can assist you in any way!

Thank you!
