Omicron Variant Continues to Impact Small Businesses
Still recovering from the financial impact of the COVID-19 delta variant, small businesses are now facing another wave of the pandemic: the omicron variant. In an already challenged economy, the rapid spread of omicron has a rising number of small businesses struggling just to keep the lights on and the doors open. In fact, the U.S. Census Small Business Pulse Survey
reports that in the first week of the year, small businesses reported a staggering 33% decrease in revenue due to issues related to the increased rate of omicron infections.
