Chilliwack, BC: In order to help local businesses adjust as we enter Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan, the Chilliwack Economic Recovery Network (CERN) has launched a new Chilliwack Restart Resource webpage through the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce’s website. This page features local business-related resources, along with best practice guides for a variety of industries.

Local businesses that are able to open and during Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan can find information for how to safely operate during this challenging time. If you’re a local business owner wondering where to purchase PPE locally or what your COVID-19 Safety Plan should entail, this new website will help you find the information you need. Visit http://www.chilliwackchamber.com/eventspage/news/chilliwack-economic-recovery-network/ to learn more.

In addition to assisting local businesses, a new webpage through the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce will help residents learn which local businesses are open and ready to serve them in the safest manner possible. It is anticipated the webpage will be a valuable resource to both local businesses and residents alike. Visit http://www.chilliwackchamber.com/eventspage/news/chamber-blog/ to see what local businesses are open to the public.

The Chilliwack Economic Recovery Network is also launching its own social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Follow the CERN for information on how your business can start to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, how to safely serve your customers and how to best operate during a time of seemingly constant change.
