Memphis, Tenn. – March 13, 2020 – In an effort to provide resources for the Greater Memphis and Shelby County business community, the Greater Memphis Chamber has created a resource page for Business Guidance on COVID-19.


“It is critical for our business community to share information with one another to help minimize disruption and reduce the economic impact of COVID-19 as much as possible,” said Beverly Robertson, President and CEO of the Greater Memphis Chamber. “As we continue to learn more information, we want to help our business community to be as prepared as possible for operations during this period of disruption.”

The page features video content, links to helpful resources as well as a list of upcoming webinars and conference calls. All resources will inform business leaders on issues related to business concerns regarding COVID-19 and proactive measures in place to contain the spread of the virus.
