COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus Resource Guide

Stay Informed | Think Woodland Chamber of Commerce

A Message from the Woodland Chamber of Commerce President

To our valued members:

As we all work together to contain and manage the COVID-19 virus it will not be without great sacrifice and economic hardship. It is essential that we all work together to support our local businesses like never before.

Our small businesses are already working diligently to try new and different ways to conduct business and serve their customers. Our collective support is vital for their survival. Our members offering professional services must swiftly navigate moving staff to virtual interactions with their customers and establishing remote work environments. I applaud the businesses and workforce that are working tirelessly to make sure that we have the food and the necessities available to stay healthy and continue some type of normalcy. The health workers, police officers and firefighters that cannot necessarily practice social distancing and must expose themselves and their families, please know, we are forever grateful.

The Woodland Chamber of Commerce will continue working closely with our government entities and business partners to provide the most current information and resources available. None of us have ever encountered anything like this and we thank you for your understanding and patience while we work to support your business, our members and the community that we love.

Be well-

Aniek Ramsay
2020 Woodland Chamber President
