Businesses need to remain open and this can be done by stopping the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks while visiting our local business community. Face coverings are required by Order of the Ohio Department of Health. Read here for more information about this order.
Signs are available to businesses by downloading the sign, print it on legal size paper and post it on your door. There will also be volunteers bringing signage to businesses if it is not posted. There will be some masks made available to businesses to have on hand for customers who enter without a mask while in their store.
During the past few months, the Hilliard community vowed “We are in this together” as it responded to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Now, as Hilliard begins taking steps toward responsible reopening, a new rallying message will represent our commitment to the future: “Move Hilliard Forward.” Please read the press release here.

SBA will also soon issue regulations and guidance to further assist borrowers as they complete their applications, and to provide lenders with guidance on their responsibilities.
The form and instructions include several measures to reduce compliance burdens and simplify the process for borrowers, including:
Options for borrowers to calculate payroll costs using an “alternative payroll covered period” that aligns with borrowers’ regular payroll cycles
Flexibility to include eligible payroll and non-payroll expenses paid or incurred during the eight-week period after receiving their PPP loan
Step-by-step instructions on how to perform the calculations required by the CARES Act to confirm eligibility for loan forgiveness
