Assistance includes free online training (live and recorded) and free one-on-one business advising.
“The SBDC is a vital partner for small businesses in San Diego,” said Supervisor Fletcher. “This new, complimentary online resource will assist business owners adapt to the new way of operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
GENERAL TRAINING TO ADAPT YOUR BUSINESS
To operate your business in the COVID-19 environment, the County of San Diego has created a Safe Reopening Plan template to guide you through the required safety procedures for reopening. Each business opening in this environment must complete the Safe Reopening Plan, implement the safety plan and post the plan at the entrance of your business. If a business cannot fully meet the standards in the template, they may provide their plan to the County of San Diego for approval.
San Diego County has been approved to move into Phase 2, allowing additional business activity. As always, check coronavirus-sd.com for the latest updates, recommendations, and regulations.
