Bend, OR – With the rapidly changing landscape as we react to the COVID-19 virus, it is not business as usual.  What are the impacts of business closures and social distancing measures on our local economy?  What does this mean for employers and employees?  What does the future hold?

The Bend Chamber is proud to present an online conversation with Damon Runberg, Regional Economist with the Oregon Employment Department.  He’ll present to-the-moment information regarding our leading economic indicators and offer an opportunity for questions and answers in real time.

“This pandemic has done a lot of damage in a short period of time. We hope to avert a human health crisis and save lives. This is the number one priority, however we already know that this has become an economic disaster. People are scared, uncertainty abounds, and many are worried about where their next pay check will come from. I don’t have all the answers, but I hope to quantify the immediate employment impact of what we are seeing unfold before us today. I will also share information and resources for those who recently lost their job or are worried they will lose their job soon. There is light at the end of the tunnel, we just need to hunker down for a bit before we can climb up to it.” –Damon Runberg, Regional Economist
