The Small Business Association of Michigan strongly believes that in order to move forward during this COVID-19 pandemic, it should not be a question of IF small businesses can be open but HOW. SBAM advocates for clear guidance that allows for small businesses to operate in a manner that keeps both employees and members of the public safe.
Through our COVID-19 Task Force, SBAM has worked to develop and drive a small business agenda on what steps need to be taken at a State and Federal level beyond the reopening schedule. It is imperative that legislators and regulators are mindful of the myriad of issues that need to be addressed in near and intermediate time frames.
We intend for this task force to remain active through at least the end of 2020.
