I'm under the impression since we're self employed, we do not qualify for unemployment.

However, I think I saw somewhere on this board that someone said under the stimulus package that we could apply for unemployment? Not sure of the details on that.

I just received an email today about the "Paycheck Protection Program" for small businesses. It's a small interest loan to cover expenses. There's a lot more to it. It may be worth checking out.

I'm in the same boat as you. Forced closure, except for essential employees. I've been closed for the past 2 weeks and will be closed for another 2 weeks (at least), per our state health order. I have not charged for the closure. If it gets extended, I'm not sure what I will do. Thankfully my husband is still working his normal job and is salaried. I wonder how long this is going to continue!
