The most recent survey of area business operations during the pandemic reports that 90% of local businesses have reopened, but they’re not in the condition they were before the pandemic.

The survey, which combines results from an area stretching from Victoria to Corpus Christi, found that a typical local business is experiencing a 27% revenue loss because of the pandemic.

Dale Fowler, president of the Victoria Economic Development Corp., which helped administer the survey, said he’s happy about the reopenings but concerned about additional layoffs, which 15% of local businesses expect to occur in the next three to six months.
