Downtown Morehead Inc. Statement

Downtown Morehead, Inc.

Editor’s Note: The following statement provided by Downtown Morehead, Inc.

Driving through Downtown Morehead, the effects of the corona virus are apparent.

Restaurants are doing curb service, salons are closed down, students have all gone home, and the streets are barren.  However, through the cloud of uncertainty, it is important to stay positive and focus on the future. 

During this time of social isolation and distancing, we will remain in contact and be available via the approved methods.

Downtown Morehead, Inc. is dedicated to the economic success and vitality of our downtown district.

In accordance with Governor Beshear’s emergency order, Downtown Morehead, Inc. will be suspending our community events for the duration of the public health emergency. Moving forward, our top priority and focus as an organization will be to provide assistance to the businesses, property owners, and affected employees within our downtown.

The corona virus is a serious threat to our community and should not be taken lightly. We need to work together to ensure our small businesses do not become the next victim of this virus. Support local when you can, many restaurants and businesses are providing curbside pickup, just give them a call.

This is the time to come together as a community to ensure our downtown remains vibrant. These are trying times and I understand the stresses you all face. Focus on the future and what a grand reopening will look like.

If anyone has questions or needs assistance, please contact our executive director, Tony Pence, via e-mail at: tonypence@gmail.com
