Recovery & Reopening
We recognize that businesses are challenged for guidance and clear information about next steps to best protect their businesses, employees and customers during our reopening phases. The Greater Freeport Partnership is uniquely aligned to advocate and provide information to our diverse business sectors with one, consistent message across our region.
With the help of our public partners at the City of Freeport and Stephenson County, we have worked to compile information we hope you will consider as you make decisions for the safety of your business. You will find links to resources within this site that will refer you to best practices from the State of Illinois, national associations and institutions who have worked diligently to provide the most accurate information regarding the health and safety of all parties.
The Partnership understands that while the health of employees and customers is the primary goal, businesses need to take time to understand and make plans for the financial health of your business as well. You will find additional resources to that end in the right column of this site.
