COVID-19 Recommendations for Businesses

As we continue to deal with the changes moment by moment brought on by COVID-19, the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning & Tourism wants you to know that we are working closely with the State & Federal Government in regards to any
opportunities for businesses during this COVID-19 pandemic.

As the situation is rapidly changing, we just ask that however you are affected, please put good record keeping into place by doing the following:

  1. Keep a daily log, which includes losses and extra expenses
  2. If you have to hire additional help, keep track of those expenses
  3. For precautionary measures, as a business track all time and dollars spent due to this situation

As we work with the Small Business Administration in regards to opportunities we will get that information on our website as soon as possible. Again, good record keeping and receipts will determine the key to all of the reimbursement, low interest loans, or tax write off . Please don’t hesitate to give us a call with any questions you may have, or contact us using our webform.
