The Morehead-Rowan County Chamber of Commerce encourages our citizens and members to support local business and to remain safe. Utilize our local restaurants by ordering ahead and online for pickup, delivery, or to order curbside.

In addition, those businesses which remain open, we encourage our citizens to support those businesses. Purchase supplies needed local and continue to be supportive of small business needs during this time.

The Chamber of Commerce is available and ready to assist small business. If a small business owner has a need or questions, please contact me via email or by phone (606) 784-6221.
