Over the past month, we’ve all seen how the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted our community here in Kosciusko County. While it can be easy to focus on the negative, the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce has been working hard to highlight the positive things still happening in our county.
The Chamber has been regularly sharing updates using their social media channels and other resources to try to keep local businesses informed about the latest resources available.

Resources Highlighted By The Chamber
COVID-19 Local Business Updates
Everyone is relying on curbside pickup options, reduced store hours, and delivery options from our local businesses. But it can be difficult to figure out which businesses have these options and which ones have closed until the COVID-19 crisis has passed.
Because of this, the Chamber created a local business resource where you can find all that information in one place! If you don’t see your business listed, be sure to complete their form and be added to the comprehensive list. Access local business updates here
Reliable CARES Act Information
With new information about the response to COVID-19 coming out nearly every day, the Chamber wanted to make sure local businesses and country residents have an easy way to access accurate information during this crisis. Get small business resources related to the CARES Act here
From schools to community services and the people they serve, many individuals and groups in Kosciusko County need help during this time. The Chamber created a dedicated place on their website where you can see the needs of a variety of local businesses and organizations.

In addition to resources highlighted through the Chamber’s website, they have created groups on Facebook to help community members find restaurants and other services within Kosciusko County during this time. The “To Go Kosciusko” group now has more than 9,700 members with people sharing the best takeout, curbside, and delivery restaurant options throughout the county. Join the To Go Kosciusko group here
The “Support Kosciusko” group is set up similarly to the “To Go Kosciusko” group, but it is for non-restaurant businesses. Members of the group share information about local businesses that are still open and offering services and products during the COVID-19 outbreak. The goal of the group is to help our community continue to support local businesses and organizations. Join the Support Kosciusko group here
