What is the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on your business?
We are now well into what some have defined as our new reality. We're working with the City of Concord and Intown Concord to conduct an important follow-up survey to our initial survey to measure the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on the business community. Please take a moment to complete the new survey. Thank you for taking the time to help us measure COVID-19's continued local impact.
