After a nearly three-month lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, Summit County took its first steps to reopen parts of its economy. Stay-at-home restrictions began to ease June 1st, allowing some businesses in retail, construction, manufacturing, lodging, and certain other industries to restart their operations.

Businesses that are able to reopen in Summit County will be required to fill out a physical distancing protocol form. The county is also keeping its face-covering requirement for people who are in a building open to the public or outside where a 6-foot distance isn’t possible. Of course, the concern there is, it’s all about socializing. So hopefully we will have people socializing in safe ways.

 Frisco Main Street Promenade

The Frisco Town Council passed a pair of resolutions authorizing new economic relief efforts in town, including a temporary “pedestrian promenade” on Main Street.

The move will allow local businesses to expand their operations into public areas and provide more space for customers to physical distance. Officials are hopeful the idea will help kick-start financial recovery for local businesses that have been hit hard by COVID-19 closures. Frisco also launched a shop local campaign called “Love Frisco, Shop Frisco,” meant to promote consumer spending in town stores. The town will help support the effort via a gift card program, which would essentially incentivize shopping locally by providing subsidies to town shops. Residents will be able to purchase virtual gift cards worth $50 or $100 that are usable at Frisco businesses, and the town will cover 25% of the cost.
