We understand the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the Executive Order by the Illinois Governor requiring the closure of ’non-essential’ businesses and restaurants have a tremendous impact on our local businesses. In an effort to be a continued source of information during this difficult time, the City of Wheaton has compiled a COVID-19 Business Resources section on its website to help connect businesses with state and federal grant programs, loans and other guidance.
For information on which businesses may continue operations under the Illinois Governor’s Executive Stay at Home Order, see this information from the Illinois Department of Commerce.
Finally, the City of Wheaton encourages the community to consider doing what you can to support our local businesses, including restaurants, retail establishments, service providers and others. For ideas on how you can support local businesses in these challenging times, the Downtown Wheaton Association and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce are resources.
