The Seymour Chamber of Commerce has launched the organization of a Jackson County Business Economic Recovery Team (BERT) to assist and support local businesses throughout the current COVID-19 crisis. This crisis has created significant disruption to business supply chains, productivity and revenues that are expected to continue for an unknown period.
The BERT Leadership Group will be comprised of government, business and professional organization representatives from throughout Jackson County. This group will serve as a single resource of information, support and resources for local businesses that have experienced negative impacts due to the crisis.
As the BERT Leadership Group is activated, they will be reaching out to local businesses with more information.
