COVID-19 Resources for Central Oregon Businesses

“Business Unusual”

During this unprecedented time, when everything seems to be changing by the hour, EDCO is still here to help our local businesses navigate our new normal, in a different way.

Technology has made communicating virtually a viable way of doing business. And while EDCO Staff are not necessarily out in the field in our normal capacity, we are still available as a resource for local companies.

If you’re a Central Oregon traded sector company struggling with the recent COVID-19 crisis, let us know. We are still offering resources and advice, free of charge (as always), throughout the region.

We will update resources to this page as they are made available. Last update: May 6, 2021.
