Dear Duarte Chamber of Commerce Members, Associates, Partners and Friends,
The Duarte Chamber is committed to bringing not only quality events and services, but are also committed to ensuring our businesses, customers and community are being protected to the best of our abilities. Our staff and Executive Board have been closely monitoring all aspects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) events and reviewing aspects of our programs and operations. These reviews have included not only governmental mandates, but health and industry input.
Our promise to all of you is to be a resource for you. You can expect staff to be ready and able to help you in the same manner as you are accustomed, with moderate changes in face-to-face interactions. As of March 13th, the Chamber has taken the following measures:
Our phones have been transferred to our remote locations and we can access our emails easily. Mail will be picked up by staff on a regular basis. The Chamber’s contact information follows.
Sheryl Lefmann, Executive Director/CEO: firstname.lastname@example.org
Diana Burckhard, Dir. Membership: email@example.com

Duarte Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 1438, Duarte, CA 91009
We will continue to monitor the situation and take steps accordingly.
The Chamber will be pushing out pertinent information to our membership as it comes in, however, we urge you to access information from appropriate authorities on this matter. These include the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. State agencies that include the Governor's Office, the California Office of Emergency Services and the California Department of Public Health. We also urge you keep up to date with local information from the City of Duarte, Duarte Unified School District, and the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health.
We are all aware of the pace in which developments are unfolding related to COVID-19. We will strive to keep you informed about any other changes to our programs and services and our ability to serve our members.
As an example of our continued support of our members, we sent a survey to all our restaurants asking them if they offer delivery service. We will compile their responses and send it out to everyone so they can still eat at their favorite restaurants or try new ones.
For our member brick and mortar stores let us know what delivery services or unique services you are providing, and we’ll pass along the information to our membership and via social media. Just email us with the information. If you have published it on social media, tell us what platform you used, and we will cross promote it accordingly.
