The Governor’s office released a statement that all restaurants, bars, gyms and movie theatres throughout the state must close as of 5pm today until further notice. Drive-thru, Carryout and Delivery Options are still allowed to continue operation. We understand that these measures will cause a strain on our local business and their employees. The SBA and State of Maryland have resources to assist both business and employees affected by COVID-19.
For more information on the SBA Disaster Loan Assistance program visit sba.gov/funding-programs/disaster-assistance. SBA provides low-interest disaster loans to help businesses and non profits through its Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL).
The State of Maryland Department of Commerce recently launched a website providing information specific to businesses and employees affected by the COVID-19. For information regarding unemployment insurance claims and financial & tax assistance visit businessexpress.maryland.gov/coronavirus.
