Chamber of Commerce

Log in


Dear Chamber Members,

These are unfortunately trying times for all of us. Please know that the Chamber is here for you as a resource if you need.

We spent the day discussing ongoing developments with local authorities so that we could compile as much important information for our businesses as possible.

Here's the most recent information we currently have:

  • All bars and restaurants are to close by 8pm this evening (Mon. 3/16) except for takeout and delivery service.
  • Gyms, movie theaters, theaters, and other businesses where there are larger crowds of people are to close by 8pm this evening.
  • The CDC recommends limiting gatherings of 50+ people for the next 8 weeks.
  • Businesses that do stay open must follow the 50% capacity rule. For example, if the fire marshal recommends your business can hold 20 people, now you may only have 10 people in it at a time.
  • There is no mandate for other non-essential businesses to close at this time, just the capacity rule. However, if there is a mandate, keep in mind that non-essential businesses are really everything except for banks.
  • Suffolk Residents Can Now Text COVIDSUFFOLK to 67283 to receive latest developments and health guidance.

Please refer to the following resources:

**Assemblyman Mike LiPetri's office has been incredibly helpful so far with information for businesses. If anyone has any questions, please reach out to Mike Falk from his office anytime at 631-456-0221 (cell). Mike said that they may have to close their office, so that he is available by text or a call should any business owners need help or information.

As information continues to be released and more developments occur, we will continue to keep members informed. Please watch on our Facebook page and website especially.

Please know that as a Chamber we are here for you. We are all suffering together during this time. We'd like to continue to promote our member businesses on our social media pages as much as possible. Please feel free to send to us (via email or message on social media) any promos you have going on or updates on your business - i.e. restaurants offering promos on takeout orders, stores modifying their hours etc. We are going to start compiling posts (and share with the Village for them to share on their pages as well) to let people know where they can order food from and do some virtual shopping or working out this week.

Please let us know how we can be of assistance.
