Covid 19 resource center image

Dear Solon Business Community,

We’ve compiled a list of resources and updates for your quick and easy reference during this extremely disruptive and alarming COVID-19 Pandemic. Together, we will get through this. And with the support of one another and access to available resources I am optimistic that our business community will be stronger and more vibrant than ever.  

In partnership with the Solon Chamber of Commerce, we have been reaching out to businesses to learn immediate challenges and how we can best respond and connect you to resources.  We are also using the survey to help match the recently unemployed with new employment opportunities.

Businesses are asked to please take 3 minutes to answer the survey.

Thank you for all you are doing to mitigate and minimize the consequences of this unprecedented crisis. Stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Angee Shaker, Director
