The Dinwiddie County Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring all updates and information available regarding the threat of COVID-19.  On Thursday, March 12, 2020, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency for our Commonwealth.  As as result, county and city governments are taking pro-active measures to help prevent the spread of this virus.  As of this post, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our community, but the threat is real, both to our citizens and to the economy.

An important part of being pro-active is containment.  As always, we encourage you to support the businesses within the community.  In the event that COVID-19 touches our community, economic impact will reach ALL types and sizes of businesses, but you can help lessen that impact in our community by doing the following:

The chamber will work with and follow the guidelines set forth by Dinwiddie County government and/or Dinwiddie County Public Schools (current school info).  We will pass along information as it becomes available to us.  Follow us on Facebook for updates as well:  facebook.com/dinwiddiechamber
