The Coronavirus (COVID19) is a rapidly moving situation calling for all of us to be prepared as best we can and ready to change as new information is made available. It is Athena Property Management’s top priority to maintain the safety of our customers and employees.
With this in mind, we have compiled a list of resources we believe to be helpful. The resources on this page are intended to help our retailers prepare for and help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. These links are not managed by Athena Property Management, but we believe they have valuable information that should be shared.
For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus), its spread in the U.S., and recommended practices to protect against the virus, we encourage you to visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) websites. Below are a few links we find to be the most helpful.
Below, we have provided links to statewide guidance for businesses to follow, if they’re permitted to open per county/city health rules. You may use effective alternative or innovative methods to build upon the guidelines. Please take the time to review the guidance that is relevant to your workplace, prepare a plan based on the guidance for your industry, and put it into action.

Maximum loan amount is $10 million at an interest rate no higher than 4%.
