With the increasing number of COVID cases in Volusia County, the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce & Orange City Alliance has returned to virtual networking for Monday-morning Office Octane meetings.
The Chamber will meet on Zoom for the next six weeks and then will re-evaluate. It also asks that members wear a mask while attending any of its upcoming in-person ribbon-cutting ceremonies or other events.
“Thank you for your understanding and patience as we strive to keep all our valued members, like yourself, safe and healthy,” the Chamber said in a message.
The West Volusia Regional Chamber of Commerce is taking similar action.
“We know safety is important to everyone,” said a weekly newsletter. “With the increasing number of COVID cases in our County we continue to encourage you to safely participate at a level that is comfortable to you.”
The Chamber is encouraging members to wear a mask while attending its programs and meetings. In addition, it will respectfully abide by any requirements that are stipulated by its venue hosts, and asks that members respect this decision and continue supporting the local business community.
