COVID-19 Information

Supporting Local Businesses

These are unprecedented times. We all need to work together and support the local businesses in the Elizabeth Area. They are our friends and neighbors and have supported us for so long. We need to return the favor - Please consider Shopping Local always and especially at this time…

  • Many local restaurants offer home delivery or carryout option. Check out Galena Country’s page of pick-up and delivery dining options!
  • Many retailers have products and specials posted on their websites or on their social media. Consider making some purchases online or over the phone with local retailers.
  • Consider purchasing gift cards to your favorite stores and restaurants. The cash flow will help the local business through this lean time, and you will get a treat at the same time!
  • Make donations to local charities and not-for-profits. These local organizations often provide needed support during trying times.
