It is no secret that small businesses all over the country are hurting now that the World Health Organization has declared the Covid-19 virus a pandemic. Many states have taken action to help prevent the spread of the virus by asking its residents to quarantine themselves in their homes to prevent the rapid spread.
As a result small businesses have suffered. Whether it’s because they were forced to shut down because their customers stopped showing up, or because they were forced to shut down to prevent the spread. Either way small businesses are hurting all across the country, including small businesses in San Diego, CA.
Since I have made it my purpose to help small and medium businesses I have created this post to create a central location with links to helpful information on resources that can help small businesses survive the pandemic.
The links below include information about some of the various federal, state, and local agencies and the governmental bodies that have implemented measures to help small businesses with cashflow problems during these trying times.
