This is a strange and scary time for many reasons, but it is important that we continue to support each other and our community. Whether that is practicing social distancing to protect our vulnerable neighbors from the coronavirus or ordering from a local business to help them stay open during these trying times. Businesses across Lancaster County are making accommodations to help protect our people, but they need our help to keep their doors open.
If you are able, consider placing an order or buying a gift card to help preserve the businesses that give Lancaster the “shop local” mentality that we hold so dear. Here is how our local businesses are adjusting:
Reminder: Wash your hands often. Use cards or tap instead of cash. Tip generously. Stay home if you aren’t feeling right. Be kind and compassionate during this scary time.
Due to the ever changing times, we suggest double checking with each’s businesses website for the most up to date information.
K-12 schools are closed statewide, but students can still access free meals at eligible schools. To see what options are available at your student’s district, visit the school’s website or contact them directly.
