March 19, 2020

[Huron County, Ontario]- “Huron County’s businesses, and the workers that support them, are essential to the vitality of our county,” says Warden Jim Ginn. “The sharp decline in business and revenue caused by COVID-19 puts workers and businesses at great risk and we need to mitigate these impacts. We are closely monitoring resources and programs available for support and will work diligently to ensure these supports are communicated with our community.”

An updated list of resources for Huron County businesses affected by COVID-19 is available at www.huroncounty.ca/economic-development/business-support. The page also provides toolkits created to help conduct businesses remotely, including: How to sell remotely on Facebook, Setting up Shopify, and Setting up Online Payment & Shipping. This is a rapidly evolving situation and Huron County Economic Development will be updating this page as new information becomes available.

At this time, Huron County Economic Development is carefully working to ensure they are prepared to meet the challenge as the current outbreak continues to grow and are endeavoring to ensure that business owners have access to factual up-to-date information, resources and funding opportunities.
