COVID-19 Resources for Businesses


First and foremost, the Rosslyn BID would like to send a heartfelt message of support to all of the businesses in our community. While we are limiting our external and face-to-face meetings, we are still hard at work for you, and are dedicated to making sure you have the resources you need during these uncertain times. 

To help you navigate this stressful and ever-evolving situation, the Business Engagement team has compiled various resources that will help you maintain your operations, access expert advice, plan for the future, and much more. To ensure that we are providing the most accurate and relevant information, we will work to update these resource pages every day. If you have any questions about the resources, please contact Annie Baldauf, Rosslyn BID Business Engagement Manager.
