Response and Recovery

The devastating impact of COVID-19 has many in our tourism community facing extreme financial hardship. To help both the local community and the many local tourism and hospitality workers out of work, the CVB launched several initiatives:

Stay in. Take out campaign: This was developed to encourage residents to support local restaurants by ordering delivery or takeout for their next meal. The website includes a continually curated list.

Seniors First landing page: To help keep the local community’s senior residents safe, a Seniors First page was created that highlights special store hours for seniors and other at-risk customers.
