The Coronavirus is not just a health issue, but also an economic issue for businesses throughout the County, state, and nation. The news and impact of the health crisis is changing by the hour and local businesses are being inundated with information from a wide variety of sources, both trustworthy and not so trustworthy. For this reason, the Franklin County Office of Economic Development, the Towns of Rocky Mount and Boones Mill, the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce, and the Franklin Center have joined forces to provide a centralized location for community businesses to go for the latest information on the outbreak and how it affects us all. The link to this page is https://www.franklincountyva.gov/682/Coronavirus-Updates-for-Business and can also be found easily by looking under the "Business" tab in our global menu at the top of every page. Coronavirus Updates for Business will be the first choice under that tab.
