Bars and restaurants have felt the struggle for the past months because of COVID. So many businesses downtown also suffered because the loss of the money that was to be made from the College World Series and the Olympic Swim trials were cancelled.

There are about 30.7 million small businesses in the country. A company that tracks most of the small businesses in the country says it expects about 13-percent of them will be forced to shut down permanently this year.
