COVID-19

Keeping businesses informed is a top priority for the Maple Valley Black Diamond Chamber. With all of the recent developments regarding COVID-19, we started a resource page to provide continuous updates and resources to keep your organizations informed and prepared. We are monitoring the situation through the State, County and Cities and will continue to communicate with our members and the community as it evolves. This page will be updated with new and relevant resources as they become available. We suggest you also like our Chamber FB page to get real time information.  #FlattenTheCurve #InThisTogether
