Honesdale Business’ Response to COVID-19
March 13, 2020
Greater Honesdale Partnership in conjunction with the Chamber of the Northern Poconos and Wayne County Commissioners have surveyed the Honesdale business community on their response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. What we have found is most businesses are choosing to remain open with normal operating hours. Also, they are paying close meticulous attention to keeping surfaces clean and safe for their customers.
The Salvation Army will see emergency clients remotely for the time being.
If you are still looking for hand sanitizer, Mount Pleasant Herbary is open with 70% alcohol hand sanitizers in 2 sizes. Dave’s Super Duper states they are stocked with toilet paper and other necessities and with normal shipments foresee being fully stocked by Monday. Salvation Army Ladore Lodge is temporarily suspending buffet service but is still holding events. The Cooperage Project will hold its’ open-air Farmers Market this weekend but is closed until March 27, 2020, Stephen’s Pharmacy and local banks have drive-up services that can be utilized for safer interactions.
GHP’s message to our community is similar to that you’ve heard from so many media reports, continue to practice good hygiene, cover your mouths when coughing or sneezing preferably with a tissue or elbow and stay home if you become sick. The Wayne County community is stronger together. Let’s take a step back from the barrage of media reports have patience with one another and continue to work together. The Greater Honesdale Partnership is a member-run organization however, the Honesdale community is where you will find our heart. We will be a service to any member or non-member looking for information. There is no better time to shop local.
