Keep Your Small Business Customers & Employees Safe While Adapting to the New Normal

Being a business owner is never easy, but keeping your small business afloat during the pandemic may have been challenging, to say the least.

And as the country starts to open back up and relax restrictions, business owners may have a new challenge on their hands: Getting back to business as quickly as possible.

That's why Simply Business and Main Street Relief teamed up to create a guide that covers everything you need to know about opening back up, including:

  • Understanding local regulations
  • Keeping customers & employees as safe as possible
  • Adapting your finances
  • How to get back in touch with your customers
  • Inviting customers back through your doors
  • Talking to your employees about the future
  • Remembering that business owners (that means you!) are resilient
