To Our Valued Clients and Friends of the Firm,
The last several weeks the COVID-19 virus has been dominating the news cycle, and it must also be dominating your personal and professional lives as well. The exacerbated impact of the pandemic, the declaration of national emergency and the directives from governmental officials to facilitate socials distancing, coupled by the recent Executive Orders of the State Governor and City Mayor has changed the landscape substantially.
At Ourfalian & Ourfalian we remain committed to not only ensuring the health and safety of our clients and employees but also to preserve the financial well-being of our business clients as we all weather this storm together.
We are actively implementing our response to this situation while operating in an environment of considerable uncertainty. Safeguarding the health of our clients, our people, and the communities where we live and work is of equal importance. Therefore we have taken the necessary steps to adhere to the local and state executive orders of “shelter in place”. While the office will be closed as we monitor the situation on a daily basis, we remain committed to address the evolving needs of our clients and provide ongoing guidance during this uncharted and fluid situation.
Our attorneys and staff are also armed with resources to help them stay safe while continuing to meet client needs and exceed expectations. We will actively follow the guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state/local governmental agencies to revise plans and make decisions accordingly.
In the interim, the following are some helpful links and information that provide resources for employers and employees as they navigate through the web of information.
The federal government has already put into place several programs to help business owners negatively impacted by the current economic climate. The following is a list of available programs.
The SBA is offering designated states and territories low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of COVID-19. The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance and can provide vital economic support to small businesses. Terms will be determined on a case by case basis, based on each individual’s ability to repay the loan. The state of California is one of the states that is eligible for SBA disaster loans.
In addition to the Federal Government, State and local governments have also begun implementing programs to help business owners impacted by COVID-19.
