“Our call Friday will include representation from the SBA as well as some of our family business members themselves, who will share their experience and provide helpful advice for others.”

Companies have shared some of their resources through Prairie Family Business, which include a COVID-19 self-assessment, a list of precautions and recommendations on how to address issues such as importing and exporting, employee pay, suppliers and truck drivers.

“We know family businesses are experiencing some unique challenges as they balance concerns over work and family, and we hope that by connecting you with others in similar situations, we’ll be able to provide some good, actionable advice,” Larscheid said.

“We want family businesses to know we’re here for them through this crisis, and we’ll be here when it has passed.”
