Durham Magazine: How We Can Support Durham Businesses During COVID-19
COVID-19’s presence in our city and state and, indeed, throughout the country and the nation, brings uncertainty and unease. Governor Roy Cooper officially banned dining in at bars and restaurants on Tuesday, March 17. Limiting gatherings and many more measures are being taken to prevent the spread of the virus. Mayor Steve Schewel issued a stay-at-home order for Durham, effective March 26 at 6pm until April 30, but it will be regularly reviewed and evaluated and can be revised, amended or extended.
Small business owners, as well as their employees, need our help. And help we must. That’s what Durham is great at. Closures and all, there are still ways for us to support our community.
