As state and county shelter in place health orders are modified and in support of the City of Oakland's Economic Recovery Advisory Council, the Chamber is convening businesses looking to reopen with modified restrictions to engage in conversation about best practices, ask questions, and share information. These informal gatherings will initially begin with four business sectors: restaurant/coffee shops, retail, manufacturing, and personal services.
