The City of Valdez and the Mayor’s COVID-19 Economic Task Force commissioned a survey to gauge the impacts of COVID-19 on the Valdez business community to focus economic relief efforts moving forward. The survey, designed and administered by Rain Coast Data, includes comprehensive multiple choice questions regarding COVID-19 business impacts, questions clarifying how the private sector can be supported moving forward during this period of pandemic, and open-ended questions allowing increased input by business leaders. The survey also includes business climate questions.
More than 100 Valdez owners and top managers responded to the survey, representing nearly 900 workers. The 27-question web-based survey was administered electronically from July 6th through July 20th, 2020.
