We are keenly aware that our business community will be faced with unexpected challenges. Now, more than ever, it is important to support our local businesses- order take-out, buy a gift certificate, shop local! Visit the #MerryinMercer page for local gift ideas.  These actions will ensure our downtown and small businesses survive. We are encouraging patrons to order just one additional item or meal extra a week to support a local business.

COVID-2019 is a respiratory infection caused by a novel (new) virus that arose in China first in December, 2019 and quickly spread across the Globe.  Symptoms include, fever, cough, and shortness of breath. It is transferred person to person, but can also live on surfaces. The CDC states to “always avoid contact with sick people and clean hands often by washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%–95% alcohol.” Both the Nation and the State have clear guidelines for “social distancing,” wearing masks, and crowd size limits to manage the spread of the disease. View Coronavirus Factsheet
