Deadline for Business Loans Affected by Tornado | Second COVID Booster | Women’s Spring Sale on Weed

Deadline for business loans affected by the tornado

The deadline is approaching for small businesses and nonprofits in Naperville and surrounding areas affected by last June’s EF-3 tornado to apply for an economic disaster loan. Long-term, low-interest loans from the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) were offered by Governor JB Pritzker to help businesses experiencing financial difficulties due to the tornado maintain operations and to cover their expenses. Businesses can apply for up to $2 million in assistance, to be repaid over up to 30 years. Applications can be made through the SBA website and must be filed by April 18.

Second COVID reminder

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a second COVID-19 booster for people age 50 and older, provided it has been at least four months since their last vaccination. On Tuesday, the FDA approved a fourth dose of the Pfizer and Moderna injections for those age groups and for people 12 and older with compromised immune systems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also endorsed the recommendation. Additionally, all adults who received two doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were encouraged to receive a third injection of either Pfizer or Moderna brands. The second set of boosters is intended to provide additional protection against COVID-19 in the event of a further outbreak.

Downtown street closures

Additional road closures in downtown Naperville will take effect today, tomorrow and Monday, April 4 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. due to ongoing construction. The areas affected are Jefferson Avenue between Washington and Main streets, and a section of Main Street between Jefferson and Van Buren avenues. Although traffic is prohibited, all businesses will remain open. The Paw Paw parking lot will also remain accessible from Webster Street.
