As the leading Business Organization in Alamance County the Alamance Chamber recognizes the extreme circumstances under which our businesses are working during COVID-19. The Chamber is here to serve as a hub for businesses looking for resources and information. We’ve gathered resources for businesses to reference as you make plans for your business. These resources can be found at on the COVID-19 Resource Page on our website.
The Coronavirus outbreak is prompting necessary public safety measures that impact the workforce and economy. It’s time to work together to minimize the spread of the virus and protect our employees, clients, and the community to the greatest extent possible all while supporting local businesses. Supporting local businesses is important as the Alamance County Community navigates through this uncertain time. There are several ways that you can support local businesses including following local businesses on Social Media, sharing their post and generating traffic to their websites, shop small/shop local online or over the telephone, order take-out from local restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries, buy gift cards now and plan to use them later, maintain subscriptions to health clubs, and ask our small businesses how you can help them.
In addition to providing resources on our website, the Chamber is hosting regular “All Business Briefing” calls to provide access to resources and information. To see all upcoming calls visit our Events Calendar. Registration is not required. We encourage all businesses have a representative participate in these calls.
We will notify you as decisions and policies are announced for businesses and the economy. We encourage businesses to follow us on Facebook.
It is more important than ever that we work together to support local businesses. The Alamance Chamber is here to be a partner with your business.

To all of our #AlamanceStrong Businesses: Thank you for helping the public health community’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic! We are encouraging companies that are producing or have pivoted to producing needed items to do the following:
Want to make sure that others in the state know what you manufacture? Register on https://www.manufacturednc.com/. This site has existed for some time and is where we are directing individual hospitals and care providers who reach out to us seeking specific resources and items.
Are you a manufacturer willing to help with production of finished PPE or materials? Is your business able to pivot to manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment? Manufacturers interested in contributing to textile PPE (gowns, masks, gloves, etc.) can contact the Carolina Textile District (CTD) for help in transitioning their production to prototype and producing medical supplies during the COVID-19 crisis. Contact Sara Chester. Carolina Textile District for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 828-674-3141
One of the brightest spots of this Coronavirus outbreak has been the willingness of community leaders, ecosystem builders and small business owners to develop open, web-based systems to keep track of business response in an ever-changing environment. We've been amazed by all of the hard work going on out there throughout Alamance County and Burlington!
Here are the best open-source resources we've identified for residents, businesses and organizations who are looking to support small business or share resources available to the broader community.
