Recovery Resources: CEO statement on masks; more on SBA loans and the plight of restaurants

A statement from the President and CEO of the Main Line Chamber
“As new coronavirus cases in Pennsylvania continue to match high rates last attained in May, it’s vitally important that our region rally around the idea that the expectation and legal requirement for individuals to wear a mask in public is a responsibility that is part of living in a society in which many things that we do affect others. This is no more an assault on individual rights than requiring co-workers not to smoke in an office environment. Gov. Wolf’s rollback of restaurant occupancy requirements, part of a broader set of ramped-up restrictions, is devastating to a segment of our Chamber’s membership. While we lacked this information at the start of the pandemic, we now know that mask wearing significantly helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.
