COVID-19 Resource Center

COVID-19 is changing the way we do business and those changes are happening on-the-fly. The Eastham Chamber will continue to monitor the news and emergency laws that affect our local, regional and state communities and bring whatever news and business resources to you as we carefully evaluate their general significance.

Please continue to follow our social media channels and return to this website for more information.

Businesses are OPEN using new COVID-19 safety standards, often remotely but can still provide the services you require. Most dining and retail can also be accessed by phone or online and offer curbside pick up and/or delivery. Please support your local businesses. They are owned and operated by your neighbors. 
Open for Business during COVID-19

The ability of the small business entrepreneur is, more often than not, forced to reinvent itself whenever it faces a change in the times, whether welcome or forced as it is now due to the coronavirus pandemic. This adjustment to business procedures can often lead to new lines of revenue and a realignment of profit margins. This is one way that you can turn your present lack of business into an investment for your business’ future.
