GGIA's COVID-19 Resource Center 

GGIA’s work continues in order to help industry businesses navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.  Communication with state, county, and local officials along with allied organizations is ongoing.  GGIA has been in contact with the Governor, the Governor's Coronavirus Task Force, Commissioner Black, numerous mayors, city council members, and county commissioners from across the state. While businesses continue to operate, GGIA recommends that everyone adhere to the CDC's guidelines, stay up to date with local and statewide ordinances, and stay safe. We appreciate the efforts and information shared by our allied organizations and have compiled a list of informational links below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact GGIA; we are here for you!
