MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Macomb County launched a new webpage that offers resources for businesses that are preparing to reopen.

The page includes guidelines for preparing to reopen business, industry specific guidelines, a directory of locally sourced supplies like PPE and signage, and access to county-created building signange that owners can print and display.

“As we begin to see declining numbers in new cases of COVID-19, our businesses are preparing to open in a way that is safe for employees and their customers,” said Vicky Rad, director of the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development. “This new page provides a one-stop place with credible and current resources to help guide businesses. As always, our business development professionals are also available to respond to any business related question through the online portal.”

County officials say they are working on a new round of grant funding that will be available to help businesses recover and thrive.
