COVID-19 Impact on Roaring Fork Valley Businesses

The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association has partnered with the other Roaring Fork Valley Chambers to conduct a survey to best understand the impacts that COVID-19 has on your business. Please complete the quick survey below so that we can begin to measure the impacts to our local business community throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. We will be using the information collected in the survey to adjust our strategy and to share with local and regional entities to secure stimulus funding to assist with recovery efforts.
