As things change minute by minute, the Auburn Chamber continues to stay in communication with community stakeholders. We are also staying up to date by watching press conferences held by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH). The Auburn Chamber continues to support, and will continue to support, businesses who have decided to suspend their operations and those who have decided to remain open.

We encourage our members to watch Brian Hastings, Alabama’s EMA director, as he addressed our state yesterday at the ADPH press conference. His message begins at 8:06.
