COVID-19 Recovery Center

On the Road to Recovery

COVID-19 has impacted our industry, our businesses, and our lives in a variety of ways. And through it all, PHCC has been committed to providing resources and tools to help during these challenging times.

As the nation now enters into its Recovery phase and individual states roll out their plans to re-open commerce, PHCC continues to keep its members informed of the latest developments that could affect their businesses. This resource page will be updated as information is made available. While we make every attempt to keep content relevant and timely, we still encourage you to consult federal, state, and local guidance and regulations.
