Year In Review: Utah Businesses Deal With COVID-19
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – COVID-19 restrictions have kept many people home this year, which impacted a lot of local businesses.
The pandemic left many struggling, and it forced others to completely reinvent themselves.
Three months into 2020 it was pretty clear that COVID-19 and its accompanying guidelines and restrictions would make the year unlike any other.
Amid the spread and concern of an unknown virus, small and large businesses alike had little choice but to shut their doors for weeks.
The first round of federal aid proved essential for many shops, but it would only go so far as the sttate faced a roller coaster of cases and hospitalizations.
Some businesses thrived during the pandemic, while others would never recover.
Keeping your distance nearly pushed the events industry out of existence. Restaurants struggled to bring customers back to their doors.
But so many business owners found a way to adapt, to make cleanliness a top priority, to get creative in connecting with customers, and finding new ways to gain their business and loyalty.
This year is not at all what businesses and customers expected, but with vaccinations and a COVID-19 relief bill on the way, they can expect something different in the New Year.
