ELY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & VISITOR CENTER
The Ely Chamber of Commerce is continuing to operate Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with some modifications. We are restricting walk-ins to our building. We encourage the public to call us at 218-365-6123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and information needs. For visitors requiring paper copies of information, we will provide curbside information packet delivery.
We encourage visitors to wear face masks while shopping and out in public areas during their stay. If you do not have your own face mask, our local seamstresses are hard at work creating fabric masks. You can contact Masks For Ely on Facebook for details. If you are new to wearing masks, the following video provides so easy guidelines for applying and removing both face masks and gloves. Face Mask Demo
The Business Hours, Service & Covid-19 List contains information on our entire business community. We have reached out to businesses to request changes in hours of operation, closures, and special services provided. Restaurants were asked to post their menus online at their website or Facebook pages, so links from the directory will provide that information.
As we receive additional resources and information, we will update this page.
Reliable resources are available to monitor information on a local, state, and national level.
