Coronavirus - Oshkosh Chamber Operational Update

The coronavirus situation has certainly been amplified over the past few days. While it appears to be potentially a real threat, it seems that uncertainty and fear is causing people stress and is rattling the markets in a way none of us has ever experienced. This situation is causing us, as an organization, to adjust our programming in response to feedback we are getting from the business community. Consequently, some of our immediate events that are scheduled in the near term are being postponed and rescheduled. We will continue to monitor the ever evolving coronavirus situation and will make appropriate decisions on upcoming scheduled Chamber events, like Business After Hours, seminars, etc. As you know, this is a fluid situation that we will continue to monitor. Looking ahead, should the trajectory of the situation continue over the next weeks, we will probably need to make additional operational and program changes.

We understand that public concern about COVID-19 will continue to cause people to be cautious. We encourage everyone to understand the facts about COVID-19 to make informed decisions. All employers should be ready to implement strategies to protect their workforce from the Coronavirus while ensuring continuity of operations. Download these guides created by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, which are based on information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to learn more about how employers and employees can prepare for and address the impacts of the Coronavirus.

Additionally, we have been taking the lead from the Winnebago County Health Department for guidance and best practices. The Department has begun producing weekly situation reports that we are sharing with the membership. These local Situation Updates will provide information for the community to help limit the spread of COVID-19 to Winnebago County. Click here to view the most recent update. The Oshkosh Chamber will continue to provide to you these weekly Situation Updates on coronavirus as long as necessary in order to keep you up to date.
