A COVID Business Impact Survey conducted by six cities in North Fulton and the Georgia Department of Economic Development revealed that 37% of businesses contacted have had to cut staff since the pandemic began. The cities hope the findings will help them offer support to the businesses.
Earlier in April, North Fulton cities and business organizations, as well as the Georgia Department of Economic Development partnered to conduct a COVID Business Impact Survey. Andrea Worthy, economic development director for Sandy Springs, presented preliminary findings of the survey during last week's City Council meeting. The respondents represented Sandy Springs, Roswell, Mountain Park, Alpharetta, Milton and Johns Creek. Professions ranged from law to medical and dental to retail, house cleaning and construction.
