COVID-19 Resource Communication | A York County Economic Development Update
From The Director's Desk
These times of change are not easy with such negative impacts being felt in our economy, our health and well-being, and our community as a whole. We know now that the impacts of the virus to our community, state, nation and world has and will continue to have lasting impacts on our future.
Historically, it is recognized that economic downturns occur, while rebounds follow. Our last economic downturn made a memorable and lasting impression on many. And though it was followed by a long and steady positive economic return, it is hard to say how deep and long our current situation may last. Even amidst these trying times of economic hardship and unprecedented public health crisis the human spirit has emerged in many positive ways, as has a deep sense of community.
York County Economic Development is committed to assisting local businesses, allies and citizens during these changes. Our team has been and will continue to be in contact with local, state and federal officials to understand what resources and opportunities we all can provide companies in the area. Along with a landing page dedicated specifically to business resources, we are also working closely with the York County Emergency Management team, County Council and other local leadership to assist in the best way we can, for both our citizens and our businesses.
We hope this page will help shed light on the various resources and partners available in a sea of ever-changing information. Please reach out with any questions or feedback and we will do our very best to assist. We are here for you.
– David Swenson, Director of York County Economic Development
COVID-19 RESOURCE PAGE
In an effort to support local businesses, York County Economic Development has developed this community resource page in response to the impacts of COVID-19. We realize that our role in Economic Development is critical right now, in regards to sharing timely and relevant information with the businesses and workers that help make our county thrive.
In response to the announced temporary closure of non-essential businesses in the state, S.C. Commerce has expanded its online resources to assist companies in navigating the impacts of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
