Businesses in Gaston County are faced with a unique challenge at this time. Nationwide, COVID-19 has disrupted the routines of millions of people and is having significant impacts on livelihoods. Not isolated from this major event, Gaston County businesses are experiencing fewer customers, compromised supply chains and cash flow challenges, which may have a reverberating impact on our citizens and local economy.


At the request of Gaston County Board of Commissioners Chairman Tracy Philbeck, a COVID-19 Gaston County Business Response Task Force has been called together to help local businesses navigate this unprecedented event. While solutions are being sought and proposed at the national and state level, Gaston County public and private sector leaders are committed to pursuing holistic local solutions to help business owners relieve the effects of this crisis.


The first action of the Business Response Task Force is to determine the unique challenges facing Gaston County businesses, both large and small. In an effort to capture this information, we ask that you please complete the included survey and offer additional comments wherever needed by end of business on Friday, March 20.
