COVID-19: Business Closures/Suspensions/Limitations

Please contact the business directly for up to date information. If you are a Bayfield Chamber & Visitor Bureau member and have changes please contact office@nullbayfield.org or call (715) 779-3335.

Here are some ideas being shared by other Chambers that we feel are worth sharing here on how to help out our local businesses. If you have others please feel free to email them to me.

  • If you have tickets to a canceled event, instead of taking a refund, consider donating that purchase price to the venue and artist.
  • Make any annual donations or membership purchases for local non-profits and cultural venues now instead of later.
  • Buy gift cards to your favorite local restaurants and retailers now, to use or give later on.
  • Shop online or via phone from local retailers, many or most will ship items from their websites, and others will gladly take orders over the phone.
  • Consider ordering takeout or delivery from local restaurants that partner with delivery services or that deliver themselves. Then tip as if you were dining in.
  • Visit the websites of your favorite artists, musicians, and writers to buy/download their goods online.
  • Like, share, and comment on social media posts from your favorite shops, venues, eateries, and artists to increase exposure and show support.
  • If you are going to join a membership organization later in the year, consider joining early as they depend on your funds to operate.
  • Donate if you are able to.

Do what you can to help, while keeping the safety of you and your family in mind. Together we can weather the health and economic impacts of this pandemic, and come out better, stronger, and wiser on the other side
