A survey of businesses in the Somerset region found that more than 90 percent of them are being impacted, in some way, by COVID-19.
The Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce surveyed 158 people in the business community to gather perspective on restarting the local economy.
Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bobby Clue said the goal was to quantify perspective from a wide representation of businesses.
“It was a very well-rounded collection," said Clue. "We had everybody from retail and entertainment to restaurants and hotels, health care, agriculture, manufacturing and industry, real estate, banking education, nonprofits, technical services, all those were represented.”
The survey found that about one-quarter of those who responded reported a 50 percent decline in revenue.
