business open

Some new figures out Friday show the impact COVID-19 has had on business here in Mobile.

The Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce has been conducting business surveys.

A survey was conducted from May 14th to 20th of chamber members and nine partner organizations, and there were more than 500 responses.

One of the questions was: is your business being impacted by COVID-19?

In that survey, more than 90 percent of the businesses said "yes," but that was slightly down from just over 94 percent in a survey conducted two months earlier in March.

The big concerns in the May survey were watching spending, and adjusting work schedules and locations.

A third of the businesses predicted decreased sales for the rest of the year.
