NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash released the following statement today in response to Gov. Kay Ivey’s announcement that emergency occupancy restrictions on businesses will be lifted:
“This is great news. Small businesses are doing everything they can to get through this crisis, but they’ll never make it without customers. Lifting the occupancy limits on stores, fitness centers, and entertainment venues will relieve some of the financial pressure these businesses have operated under since March.
“2020 has been tremendously challenging for small businesses, and it may be months before things get back to normal. I want to thank Governor Ivey for doing everything she can to help small businesses get through this crisis and avoid cutting jobs and closing their doors for good.”
