As many businesses that have been closed may choose to open today, everyone should continue to follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing, cleaning, and disinfecting whenever possible.  They should also consider following the guidelines by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and consult with their respective trade and business organizations to identify industry best practices to safely welcome back employees and customers. There are no local orders from the Chippewa County Public Health Department.  We will continue to monitor and will keep you updated.

As more and more businesses reopen, we've created customized storefront signage to help educate your clientele on your policies and procedures. Please print and use as helpful. As always, don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of further assistance.

The recent outbreak of Covid-19 is putting our families, communities, countries and economies under unprecedented pressure. Farmers are standing strong in the middle of this storm.  In the face of great uncertainty, the Chamber is hoping to express our gratitude to those keeping food on our table.  However, we need your help to determine the feasibility of this event. 

The Farmer Appreciation Dinner (formerly the June Dairy Day Dinner) has been postponed to Wednesday, August 19 at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds.  The committee is working hard to safely provide a meal for the farmers and Chamber business members in accordance with all regulations and guidelines:

  • All meals will be assembled away from the public in carryout containers
  • Drive through lane will be available for farmers not comfortable entering the building
  • Dinner seating will be spaced to ensure proper distancing.

In order to successfully run this event, the Chamber needs to have a commitment for 1,000 tickets (half of the normal ticket sales) prior to June 15.  Only then, will we begin advertising the event to Farmers.

**New opportunity this year, Platinum and Gold sponsors have the opportunity to have a booth display at the event, a 10x10 area will be provided inside the building.**
