How NOLA's Businesses Are Leading the Way Through COVID

Quarantine is a tough time for many different people and to varying degrees. We’ve all had to adapt in one way or another whether that’s in our professional lives or personal lives. It’s been particularly difficult for small businesses learning to navigate through PPP loans, trying to maintain staff and being uncertain of when businesses can fully reopen. New Orleans once again shows its resilience during this tough time and has continued to band together to begin what is hopefully a safe re-entry into normalcy. As Louisiana moves through the phases of reopening, we decided to talk to some local business leaders within New Orleans about how they believe quarantine has gone and what they have learned.
