Resources for entrepreneurs effected by the Coronavirus pandemic

I have been following the rapidly changing rules and resources for small businesses. Below is a compilation of the information that I have found valuable thus far to help aid businesses through this challenging time. I will update this resource as I am made aware of and am able to research. 

*In no way is the information on this page a substitute for professional legal, health or accounting. For each resource the source is also quoted. To be sure of validity please consult the appropriate professional or the source itself. 

See if your state and county have been declared a disaster area. This will effect what government programs you qualify for. https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/Declarations/Index
