Last month we checked in on businesses around the North State about whether they received funding from the emergency federal grant and loan programs launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and on what the stay-at-home order meant for their employees and business.

Now as our region is moving further into Stage 2 of California’s reopening, we’re again checking the pulse of regional businesses. 

NSPR’s Ken Devol interviewed five North State business leaders about how they’ve been adjusting. Here are highlights from those conversations with the owners and spokespersons from Cafe Coda in Chico, the Allies Pub in Chico, Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, Yaks Coffee & Eatery in Mt. Shasta and Dunsmuir, and Rub-A-Dub-Dog Grooming in Red Bluff.
