Cedar Rapids Gazette: A new federal report on the economic and employment impacts of the coronavirus pandemic suggests the experiences of Iowa businesses are similar — in some cases better — to those of businesses in other states. The Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of nearly 600,000 businesses across the country and Puerto Rico found that the experience of Iowa establishments was for the most part “relatively similar” to those in other parts of the country. In other cases, the percentage of Iowa businesses experiencing pandemic-related impacts on their operations was “substantially” better or less disruptive, the survey found.
