New Chamber Survey Shows Businesses Finding Ways To Cope With COVID-19


More McAllen businesses are finding ways to stay in business even as the coronavirus continues to spread throughout the region. That’s part of what’s contained in a new McAllen Chamber of Commerce survey of how local businesses have been affected by the virus.

The Chamber’s third survey in seven months found about 26% of the 100 businesses questioned had adopted a system that combines both in-office and remote work. 13.7% switched to a strictly work-from-home system. 60% have returned to or continued their in-office operations.

Among the bright spots – the survey found 5% of business owners expecting to eventually go out of business – down from 18% in the first study in April. About one-third, however, say they’re worried about whether they could survive a potential second coronavirus wave.
