Restaurant Owners and Service Industry Employees
We know this is a difficult time for all of the service industry employees and owners affected by current distancing guidelines. We are working on bringing you a list of resources that might help you through these times. Keep in mind these are only ideas and each employer or employee should use their discretion. In the meantime, any employers who has had to layoff any employee as a result of COVID-19 distancing guidelines should file a partial claim with the Georgia Department of Labor. You can get more information about filing partial claims on our State Resources page.
Crowdsourced Funding for Affected Employees
Several restaurateurs are starting crowdsourcing campaigns on sites like GoFundMe.com in an effort to raise money to help employees make ends meet through their shutdown. We encourage you to make sure you are aware of the rules and regulations that are involved in these types of campaigns before you proceed.
Registering on ServiceIndustry.tips
Affected service industry employees can register to receive tips through a Service Industry website. This particular website is for the Chattanooga area. Each time the page is loaded, the site will pick a random service industry team member who has registered to let the visitor to the site leave a tip for that employee.
Buying Gift Cards from Restaurants
We hope everyone can safely visit any restaurant in our community that is still open and offering takeout or delivery orders if they are able. However, we understand the concern of leaving your home during this time. If you have a favorite local spot to eat, we encourage you to visit their website or call their store to see if they offer gift cards for sale. This is a great way to show your support for their establishment during the COVID-19 pandemic. And once social distancing guidelines are lifted, you'll be ready to visit them in person to use your gift card.
The Catoosa County Chamber of Commerce has developed a comprehensive list of restaurants that are still offering services during the current social distancing term. Please understand that as day-to-day changes in availability of services occur, there may be some lag in updating this information. We encourage you to confirm these services prior to going to their establish and appreciate your patience.
If you know of any updates to this list, please send us an email to let us know.
