Impacting Businesses of All Sizes
Just as how Covid-19 impacted many people of all different backgrounds, it also impacted many businesses of all different sizes.
In efforts to do our part to help, we coordinated research and surveyed small businesses.
Thanks to contributing business owners and the Jacksonville Chamber for the input and resources.

Impact of Covid-19 on Small Business
Impact Varied Depending on Industry
From both the survey and our personal interactions with business owners, we saw that industries were impacted differently by the pandemic. Some industries had immediate consequences by having to shut doors. Others saw a lowering of demand for their services while some actually saw an increase in business.
As the pandemic continued to climb, many businesses were instructed to shut their doors. This left many businesses scrambling to figure out alternative ways to operate their business and generate revenue.
Businesses Ability To Work Remotely
Tools like Zoom, Skype and other video conferencing software and technology gave some businesses the ability to operate virtually.
While these solutions helped out some businesses not all operations can be addressed virtually.
