Is your business ready for the cold and flu season?
Small businesses across the nation are being urged to prepare for what may be a brutal cold and flu season. A meeting in Washington DC is scheduled to examine the impact of the upcoming cold and flu season on the nation’s small businesses. The House Committee on Small Business is scheduled to hold a hearing entitled, “The Challenges of the 2009-H1N1 Influenza and its Potential Impact on Small Businesses and Healthcare Providers” on September 9, 2009. Lawmakers will hear testimony from representatives of federal agencies, small businesses, healthcare practices, and financial institutions about preparedness efforts and concerns about the potential economic impacts of the 2009-H1N1 influenza.
