The coronavirus has created unexpected challenges for millions of small businesses.
With this in mind, Facebook announced the creation of the Business Resource Hub to support businesses being affected - directly or indirectly - by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. There is also a retail specific guide (attached).
The Hub features resources and recommendations to help small businesses stay connected to customers and keep their business on track. It also includes quick and easy access to credible and accurate information about COVID-19 to help small businesses and the communities they serve, stay informed.
The Business Resource Hub is the latest step Facebook has taken in its response to the coronavirus. To learn more about how Facebook is keeping people safe and informed, see here.
