Effective at midnight on Wednesday, March 25th, Governor Inslee's Stay Home Order mandates that all non-essential businesses temporarily halt operations unless employees are able to work remotely from home.
For small businesses, this raises a whole slew of questions!
It's imperative to have a small business crisis plan in place - not just for dealing with COVID-19, but in the event of a natural disaster, cyber attack, loss of key employee - you name it. A small business crisis plan can mean the difference between weathering the storm or watching everything you've worked so hard for slip away.
Governor Inslee and Washington State's Department of Commerce are crafting a plan right now to use some of our state's Strategic Reserve Fund for a small business emergency grant program, the details of which we are all anxiously awaiting! We will update this page when we learn more about these resources.
The Federal Small Business Administration may also be able to help your small business meet financial obligations amidst COVID-19.
Here at Lyda Law Firm, we deeply care about the health and well-being of small businesses, and we're here to help you and your business weather this storm.
