Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for Businesses
Maryland Business Express has created a comprehensive list of state executive orders and business resources that is available on their website, and is updated regularly. The EDC strongly encourages all Brunswick businesses to check this page regularly.


In this resource you will find a number of resources and frequently asked questions which can help guide your business through this global pandemic. The resources focus on several different areas from marketing on Facebook and Google, to CDC Guidelines for small businesses and the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan process. We encourage all businesses to review these tips and to consider applying for funds, while your business may not be experiencing trouble now, there is a very real chance that if economic relief is not brought to those businesses in most need in the next few weeks their troubles will cascade into healthy businesses bringing those businesses down and the economy down as well. Federal Funds are not a silver bullet and should be used in conjunction with the other strategies outlined below.

Having a plan and funds in place now can help to keep your business open and operating and your employees paid.
