Orange County is conducting a survey to determine the full impact of COVID-19 on our local economy. Business owners are asked to complete the questionnaire to help the county better understand financial impacts caused by the pandemic.

Unlike damage caused by a natural disaster like a tornado or flooding, the impacts of the pandemic are not as easily identifiable.

This information collected will be used to help determine the economic impact from COVID-19 and help to inform strategies for economic recovery. Results will help the county understand where federal or state support may be most critical and where to direct financial or technical assistance to local businesses.

The online survey will be live through the end of August and includes questions about business impacts caused by the pandemic, including job and revenue losses. Click the link below to access the survey.

Hagerty Consulting is an emergency management consulting firm that helps clients prepare for and recover from disasters.Established in 2001, Hagerty has worked on projects in more than 30 states.
