The Chamber Updates

The Current Health Crisis and The Northwest Chamber

As we are all well aware, the Coronavirus outbreak has resulted in our lives being effected in many ways. The Northwest Chamber of Commerce will stay committed  to our members and our community through this crisis.

For everyone’s’ health, we are postponing all of our  in-person scheduled events until further notice. If you have already registered, you will receive a separate email as well.

We WILL still be able to offer our Webinar Wednesday online event about stress. What a perfect subject! Look below to register.

Once we know when it will be safe again to gather in public areas, we will send out a special email with all of the new dates for the events which are postponed for now.

How You Can Help Our Members Affected By Closures

As a rule, when we schedule our networking events, we try to patronage our restaurant and retail members as much as we can. Unfortunately, these members will now have a dramatic change to their daily revenues. This includes their staff as well.

Even though we can not meet together this month at their establishments, we ask that you still support them by ordering delivery or takeout meals as well as donate items and shop at Ruth’s Closet, where we were scheduled for an event.

Go through our directory and find a member for a service that you need or for lunch or dinner options. Buy a gift card at a member location so you can enjoy time there when the crisis is over. 

We wish you all good health and we want to know how
we can help you or your business during this trying time.

Legislative Update: HEALTH CRISIS

COVID-19 Update

Hi neighbors,

I am deeply concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on all our residents. Proactive measures have already been taken to slow down and mitigate the spread of this disease.

It is important we continue to social distance as much as possible. At this time, we still do not know everyone who has the virus. We do not want to unknowingly spread it.

This is undoubtedly a stressful and difficult time for all of us, but we will get through this together.

In the midst of this public health crisis, we must act boldly to protect the health, safety and well being of every resident.

Please see the announcements made during Gov. Larry Hogan’s news conference this morning regarding COVID-19: 

– Per executive order, all restaurants, bars, movie theaters and gyms will be required to shut down at 5 p.m. today. Grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, gas stations and other essential services will remain open. Drive-thru, carryout and food delivery service will be allowed to continue.
– Maryland schools can now provide up to three free meals a day for students across the state during the school closure. Locations can be found here:
– Prohibited any social, community, religious, recreational sports, gatherings or events of more than 50 people in close proximity in all locations, establishments and venues all across Maryland.
– Activated 250 Maryland state troopers who are ready for deployment.
– The Maryland Department of Health is also assessing the possibility to reopen closed hospital facilities across the state and to take other actions necessary to immediately help increase the state’s capacity to care for patients and increase hospital beds by 6,000.
– The Maryland Medical Reserve Corp was activated — a force of 5,000 medically-trained volunteers, who can assist in a public health emergency. More than 700 members were activated for deployment.
– Any medical professional with a valid out-of-state license or an expired Maryland medical license will be able to practice here in Maryland during the state of emergency.
– Activated 400 Air and Army National Guard members over the weekend. By Monday, 1,000 national guardsmen were activated. Another 1,200 guardsmen are on enhanced readiness.
– Prohibited utilities — including electric, gas, water, sewer, phone, cable TV and Internet service provider companies — from shutting off any residential customers or charging late fees.
– Prohibited the eviction of any tenant during the state of emergency.
– There are 37 confirmed coronavirus cases in Maryland. Case numbers will be updated every day at 10 a.m. They will be added to the Maryland COVID-19 Case Map located at:
