It's no secret that businesses in Georgia and across the country are suffering this year due to the ongoing pandemic. As the medical director of a rural eye clinic, I too have felt the strains of keeping my small business afloat. Like many other small businesses, we've had to adapt and become creative in the way we run our practice and take care of our patients. A recent survey from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and MetLife found that small businesses anticipate the worst of the pandemic is still ahead. What's more, half (50%) of them believe they will have to close permanently over the coming year in the current climate. Thankfully, Georgia has two business allies in our U.S. Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
