In the midst of the pandemic, small businesses across the country are being forced to close up shop at record rates. Even with recent government stimulus efforts, many small businesses have been forced to lay off employees, cut back on budget for things like marketing and advertising, or ultimately cease operations.
In fact, reports show that as of May 2020, over 100,000 businesses had to close down across the US.
Fortunately, as virus numbers decreased in the months to follow, businesses were able to reopen. This reopening, however, did not come with its own set of challenges.
