Chamber Presents to City COVID Committee

The Chamber presented to the San Diego City Council COVID committee this week to discuss:

  • Positive unemployment numbers that came out last week
  • The role of the Chamber in supporting the business community through COVID – including guidance to all businesses on workplace regulations and over 150,000 units of free PPE being distributed

Ongoing challenges:

  • COVID-19 at the workplace and uncertainty about how to respond to positive tests now that we have so many resources for treatment
  • Cost of living challenges: childcare, housing
  • Economic uncertainty: how do small and medium businesses defensively position themselves with the increasing likelihood of a recession?
  • What opportunities are there going forward: public/private partnerships; connections to capital; keeping administrative costs low for business
