Ooops! Earlier today we sent the incorrect draft of this email, one that did not include mention of our new guest-facing COVID-19 informational webpage. Please see the correct version below. We respect your inbox and deeply regret sending out another email to you today. We hope you find this information valuable.
We are sure you are very concerned about the COVID-19 news and the impacts this may have on your business and we deeply sympathize with every one of our stakeholders in Estes Park. Even if Estes Park does not see any cases, we have already seen and anticipate that business will be considerably impacted. So, what can we do to help mitigate these negative impacts? We are working with Town, Health and Business officials to keep updated on the most recent directives which seem to be changing by the hour. This includes updates from State and National officials and travel organizations.
We have launched a new COVID-19 page on our website under “Plan” to keep travelers and local businesses up to date, so they can plan their trip to Estes Park with actual facts from our State and National travel organizations. You can check it out here: https://www.visitestespark.com/covid-19/.
We recommend tracking any lost business and working with the Estes Park EDC for SBA loans or other future grants that are going to become available from the government to ease impacted businesses.
The following is a message from Adam Shake at the EDC:
“The Estes Park EDC is prepared to support businesses experiencing financial impacts resulting from the pandemic. Business feedback is essential to their ability to support operations during this time and if your business has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, please let them know. You may contact Estes Park EDC President/CEO Adam Shake at email@example.com or by calling 970-577-1031.”
Visit Estes Park is still moving forward with our April 29th Summit, but it will be entirely online instead of in person. We are planning to post a video presentation and open it up for comments and feedback,
which will be a great way to learn about opportunities that you can take advantage of to help your
business rebound. We are planning a face-to-face industry meeting to later in the Fall of 2020.
By working together and supporting each other, we will overcome these challenging times and
hardships and we will continue to make every effort to support you and your teams. Our industry is a
resilient one and our team is here to support each of you.
We wish you and your families to remain healthy and strong,
