For Immediate Release (May 19, 2020) – The Cape Cod Commission and the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce have issued an online survey to Cape Cod business owners to better understand the current and anticipated economic impacts of COVID-19.

Data collected through this survey will be used to support economic recovery now and in the coming weeks and months, and can be leveraged by businesses, towns, and other organizations in future grant applications and reports.
