Reopening Cleveland County Responsibly

The guiding principle of the Cleveland County Government reopening strategy is that our county is stronger when we collaborate. In these challenging and uncertain times, no one can foresee what lies ahead, however, we can see clearly the resiliency of our county to confront new challenges.

Employers and community organizations will be asked to play a lead role in ensuring we can safely reopen and stay open. By working together to ensure the health and safety of employees and patrons, we can protect public health, promote public trust and consumer confidence, and rebuild our economy.

You Can Count On Us Cleveland County is a voluntary program developed by Cleveland County Government and designed to ensure our local businesses and organizations participating are equipped to deliver the highest standards of public health and safety in order to comply with federal, state and local guidance during the reopening process.

Cleveland County small businesses need our help now more ever. Listed below are some ideas on how we can keep them going. 💚

+Buy gift cards from retailers, restaurants and salons, as this may help ease some of the cash flow issues that these businesses are currently experiencing.

+Although businesses are closed, continue to keep them in your social media feeds. Post photos of these businesses and share/like photos that other people have posted (i.e.,take out pizza from Pleasant City Wood Fired Grille).

+Take a moment to post reviews of your favorite businesses online. It only takes a few minutes to write a review on Facebook, and your review can make a big difference to a small business.

+Continue to order takeout from local restaurants and shop with local retailers online who are offering that feature. Some businesses such as RollOver Pets are even offering delivery of their merchandise to your home. Others may be willing to ship your order directly to you.

The City of Shelby is proud to announce that City Council has approved the creation of the Shelby1Fund emergency loan program to help small businesses in our community. The mission of the Shelby1Fund is to provide short term “bridge funding” to small businesses located within the city limits of Shelby, and assist them financially by getting operating funds to them quickly, as they adapt to the hardships brought about by the COVID-19 crisis. The City of Shelby has partnered with Mountain BizWorks to oversee the loan application and fund distribution process. Mountain BizWorks is a non-profit, US Treasury-certified community development financial institution based in Asheville, which has 30 years of small business lending and training experience.

🚨 DES has received official guidance on how to implement the three unemployment programs of the federal CARES Act.

👉 They are working as quickly possible to modify their systems to begin the application process.

ℹ️ The federal programs will expand state benefits and offer benefits to anyone not eligible for state benefits and those that have exhausted state benefits.

The programs are:
1️⃣ Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation gives an additional $600/week to those with state benefits;
2️⃣ Pandemic Unemployment Assistance provides benefits to independent contractors, self-employed, church employees and those with exhausted benefits; and
3️⃣ Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation offers up to 13 more weeks of state benefits for those who have exhausted state benefits.

📍 Anyone eligible for federal benefits will see an “ineligible” status if they applied before federal programs are available. This does not make you ineligible for federal benefits.

🔎 More information, including updates on eligibility and how to apply for these benefits will be provided on the DES website at the link below.

Many people in Cleveland County are still working daily to keep our community moving during this crisis. In our video, we are extending a special shout out to manufacturers, first responders, and healthcare workers; however, there are countless other Weeklong Warriors out there that we would like to thank:

+Teachers and bus drivers
+Grocery store staff
+Truck and delivery drivers
+Food service workers
+Convenience store workers
+Assisted living and nursing home staff
+Nonprofit staff and volunteers

Who would you like to add to the list? Do you personally know people who are working on the front lines daily that you would like to recognize? We encourage you to give a shout out to people you see and know who are continuing to serve the Cleveland County community through their hard work.

❓ Seeing a “Pending Resolution” message about your unemployment payment?
👉 That means we're waiting to hear from your former employer.
ℹ️ Click the link at the end of this post for reasons a claim might have "pending resolutions".

🔎 By law, employers have a 10-day period to respond first. No payments are made during this period.

If they don't respond, and you've selected "Coronavirus" as the reason for separation, the system will automatically adjudicate the issue.

If all requirements are met, benefits will be paid, as long as you're completing your weekly certifications. Weekly certifications will be paid retroactively.

The employer will be notified of this determination of benefits by mail. If the employer feels the claim is not valid, they may appeal the determination.
