Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is joining forces with the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Erickson Sederstrom, P.C, L.L.O. for an online town hall with small business owners and business leaders throughout the state.

DHHS leaders will provide an update on the virus, the variants discovered in Nebraska, and statewide vaccination efforts.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought widespread economic disruption that severely challenged the Nebraska business community. Businesses closed and unemployment surged to levels not seen since the Great Depression. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, the number of people who were self-employed and working was 20 percent lower in April 2020 than in April 2019.

Through the pandemic, the NE Chamber has focused on delivering critical information to help all Nebraska business owners respond and adjust to evolving conditions, guidance, regulations, and recovery and relief programs. A steadfast advocate for free enterprise, a competitive business climate and statewide economic growth, the NE Chamber is the state's only broad-based business and industry association.
