Business, Community, & Senior Resources

COVID-19 Main Page

Coronavirus-badge-300

The City of Show Low is very concerned about the impact COVID-19 has on the operations of local businesses, our community and seniors. This page will be updated as additional resources become available.

 BUSINESS RESOURCES

We will continue to monitor and share information provided by the Navajo County Public Health Services with our residents and the business community. We invite our local business-owners to follow these websites.

The City of Show Low organized and is deploying a group of local volunteers called Show Low Business Ambassadors.  These volunteers will call Show Low businesses to gather information for the purpose of developing a network to share available business resources, share best practices of operating a business during a crisis, and provide overall support for one another.  The information will be delivered via email blasts, posts on the Show Low Economic Development Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ShowLowEconomicDevelopment/), and via podcasts and Show Low TV in the coming days.

 SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering designated states and territories low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Small businesses that may be in need of economic assistance as a result of COVID-19 are encouraged to apply on the SBA website.

Paycheck Protection Program

 To support small businesses, the Arizona Small Business Association and the Arizona Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to create the CARES Act Readiness Program for Small Businesses.

This online training program helps small businesses access the capital they need, helping both novice and experienced borrowers successfully access relief funds.

 

The CARES Act Readiness Program for Small Businesses provides this individualized support for free. The program is customized to the business owner’s borrowing experience. It provides 2-5 online classes that will walk businesses through everything from the basics of finance to submitting loan applications. 

On June 15, SBA will begin accepting new Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance applications from qualified small businesses and U.S. agricultural businesses.

The Arizona Commerce Authority COVID-19 Business Resources has gathered resources to support businesses and employees as they take steps to return stronger.

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) PUA provides benefits to individuals who are not otherwise eligible for unemployment insurance (UI) benefits.

Starts 4/4/2020. New for ALL Walmart stores (click the link to read the whole article):
"Starting Saturday, we will limit the number of customers who can be in a store at once. Stores will now allow no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a given time, roughly 20 percent of a store’s capacity.
To manage this restriction, the associates at a store will mark a queue at a single-entry door (in most cases the Grocery entrance) and direct arriving customers there, where they will be admitted one-by-one and counted. Associates and signage will remind customers of the importance of social distancing while they’re waiting to enter a store – especially before it opens in the morning. Once a store reaches its capacity, customers will be admitted inside on a “1-out-1-in” basis."
