The current COVID-19 pandemic is having an obvious negative effect on businesses. To document the true effects of the pandemic on Archbold businesses, Ohio State University Extension and the Ohio Sea Grant College Program partnered with the Village of Archbold and Reveille Ltd. to conduct a business impact survey to determine the issues that these businesses are facing.
The following is an analysis of the local business impact survey that was conducted from April -June 2020. Businesses were asked questions regarding the industry in which they were operating, level of business closures, operating capacity and procedures, employment levels, finances, and concerns for the future.
