[Huron County, Ontario] – Many local businesses in Huron County are challenged to continue staying open or maintain regular operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The County of Huron Recovery Team is focused on ensuring that business owners have the information and support that they need to make informed decisions and continue to operate.

“It’s clear that immediately going back to business as usual any time soon is unlikely, but the County is committed to helping all businesses maintain operations as much as possible,” says Warden Jim Ginn. “Regardless of a business’ situation, we need to ensure that we are doing what we can to help them adapt to the ‘new normal.’ We are dedicated to working collaboratively and supporting the local business community.”

The Recovery Team is reaching out to all local businesses to offer support, gather data on the impact of COVID-19 and lay the groundwork for developing recovery strategies. Along with this, they continue to work closely with all levels of government and regional partners so they can provide the most up-to-date information for businesses, including access to programs and relief opportunities available to them.
