More of a comment - we received a legal alert directed at nonprofits, and want to make sure other businesses receive information about the relief package just passed and the new requirements for employers with fewer than 500 FTE to provide medical leave for employees. I know many businesses are going to need guidance on what this means for them and how to comply.

The application process for the SBA’s EDIL is open now. The SBDC and Score can help business owners helping them with financial projections and gathering their financial data for the application. Most of our consultants had some training on the process this morning. It’s a 30 year working capital loan.

Is there information available to guide people how and where to get tested if they suspect they have contracted the virus, particularly those with no health insurance? They may assume they should go to ERs but that's not necessarily the best option.
