We are all facing new and unexpected challenges in light of Covid-19. Please review the list of resources below that might be helpful to you, our members, during these times. We are collecting information from our members and partners including the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce and the Mobile Section of the Associated General Contractors of Alabama as well as other news sources.

If you have something that would be of use to our member companies, please email Jennifer Denson at jdenson@pepmobile.org.

LOCAL RESOURCES

  • Proxi Public Relations has developed a guide to help you communicate with your customers and employees. Review it here.

STATE RESOURCES

  • The Order of the State Health Officer has posted some FAQs on the current Oder of the State Health Officer. Click here to access those FAQs.
  • Statewide Shutdown – Information from the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce: The Alabama Governor’s Office has NOT yet released anything regarding parameters around exempt operations, nor have they enacted a mandated shutdown. The preference is to say open as long as possible. The Department of Homeland Security did provide States a set of guidelines on what is deemed essential operation, but it is ultimately up to each State to enact a statewide shutdown. Businesses are encouraged to draft a letter to the Governor’s office and to define some portion of your operation with the DHS guidelines. Letters should be sent to Will Parker with the Governor’s office: will.parker@governor.alabama.gov. Will’s mailing address is: 600 Dexter Avenue, Montgomery, AL 36130.
  • Essential Business Form In the event Governor Ivey declares all non-essential businesses to close, Manufacture Alabama is keeping a record of those manufactures considered essential. Click here to sign up on this page.
