Programs to help businesses impacted by COVID-19 are not one-size-fits-all, according to Salem and Dent County Economic Development Director Sally Burbridge.

Self-employed, 1099 contractors and small business owners who are impacted by the coronavirus are all eligible for some form of assistance, she said.

“The number of entities and resources is overwhelming,” Burbridge said. “If you need a local person to assist you in figuring out where to look and what financial resources might fit your situation, give me a call or send an email.”
