A message from the President

Dear Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce Members,

 The purpose of this email is to update you on the latest
information we have come across in the last week.  I'm sure you have all been inundated with
emails regarding the COVID-19 virus, and how to handle seeing
patients/clients/patrons.  If you need
more information about this, there is a link at the bottom of this message.

 While the welfare and safety of you and your family is top
priority, the future of your business, which supports your family, is also very
important.  Below are some pieces of
information and links to help you navigate through this difficult time.  Included is HR 6201, where if passed, all
employers will be required to pay their employees, regardless of size.  Government agencies are working to advance
funds to businesses so they can meet paid sick-leave requirements.

 Please CHECK YOUR EMAIL, as this will be the primary means
of communication moving forward.  You can
expect updates regularly from the chamber office, and from the legislative
committee as well.  We are working
closely with Mayor Bury to gather updated information.  Mayor Bury and the chamber executive
director, Julie Miller, have contacted Kelly Burke and Jim Cunningham to host a
private chat to discuss the situation and what it means for small
businesses.  This web-based private chat
will be held on Wednesday, March 18th at 3:00 pm.  Log-in details will follow soon. We need you
to submit questions to the chamber via email for Kelly and Jim.

 The chamber office will close at 1:00 pm today until further
notice.  Calls to the office will be
forwarded to the Julie's phone.  Email
will be checked as well, and our website will include all these links on the
home page.

 We are working around the clock to gather pertinent
information and will get it to you via email when it's received. 

 All chamber events through April 1st have been
.  More information will
follow in the next few weeks regarding make-up dates.

 Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.

 Respectfully yours,

 Dr. Katie Narbone

Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce President
