In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, officials have recommended that people limit large gatherings, regularly wash hands, and stay home if they’re feeling sick.

Social distancing and self-imposed quarantines are good for community health during the COVID-19 outbreak, but with the cancellation of large events and Lakelanders choosing to stay home, this can be a challenge for small businesses.

City of Lakeland’s Cancelations & Closures list

Lakeland businesses are getting creative and continuing to serve residents in new ways, such as restaurants offering order-ahead, curb-side pick-up and delivery options. Retailers are staying open and taking online orders or closing their doors and offering free shipping.

We are urging small businesses and Lakelanders to use the hashtag #SupportLkld in an effort to stay up to date with the latest information and news regarding their businesses. 

Here are a few examples of local businesses that are open and taking precautionary measures in order to serve you and your family during this time. #SupportLkld
