Business Resources

All members of the community are encouraged to consider how personal behavior can help move Nevada County to the next tier ranking. Individual action will lead to collective mitigation that will shift the county’s tier status. Wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, washing your hands and getting tested can help move Nevada County through the tier system and support decreased modifications to business operations.
