Here are a few ways you can support your local small businesses as we practice social distancing and stay safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.

-Take advantage of take-out curbside service and free delivery offers from local restaurants in the Gables.

-Don’t cancel your event at a local hotel, postpone it.#dontcancelpostpone

-Shop local for the next 30 days for all daily needs, even if online only.

-Share special offers you see on social media with your own networks, as well as what is currently open for business.

-Check in with your employees, vendors and clients especially if they are working remotely to see how they’re doing.

-Comment, engage, and offer authentic support on your social media platforms to everyone and use the #OpenForBusiness hashtag.

-Donate non-perishable food items to a local charity.

-Consider sending a digital gift card to someone in need, even a co-worker or employee, who may not be able to stock up for 14 days.

-Stay connected to your Chamber, City and community organizations and engage through your personal industry network.
