Update on COVID-19 and CCA

Published Monday, March 16, 2020

The COVID-19 situation continues to change daily. The CCA team is closely monitoring public health announcements and local measures, and following the guidance of officials to ensure that CCA members are informed, safe and supported during this unprecedented time. Get the latest in LA here.

Yesterday, the CDC recommended that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. We sent a note last week about cancelling events this week, and we will continue to inform you about upcoming meetings and events. We will be sending new dates for upcoming events and information on any virtual meetings. Please look out for our e-blasts, check our website and contact Nella McOsker with any questions. Thank you for your continued support as sponsors and participants of our events.

Small Business Government Assistance
The US Small Business Administration announced it would work with state governors to offer disaster assistance loans for up to $2 million for small businesses affected by the coronavirus. These low-interest loans are available to businesses that have sustained "substantial economic injury" due to the spread of the coronavirus. Read more about this here and check the LA SBDC website hereWe will track any other government assistance announcements. Please let Marie Rumsey know if you are interested in learning more or have any ideas for our advocacy efforts.

Los Angeles is a resilient city, and we know we can stay strong during these turbulent times. CCA is here for all of our members. Please reach out if there's anything we can do to support you and your organization.
