The package will distribute $600 checks to individual Americans who make less than $75,000 a year. That is half of what was distributed under the CARES Act this spring.

The county made the announcement just one day after the Augusta National Golf Club moved to open the Masters Tournament to a limited number of patrons in April.

Any small business with less than 100 employees can qualify for up to $15,000. It’s a forgivable loan based on retaining workforce.

As a result, the county will open a website to allow for small businesses to apply. That website can be accessed here starting Monday.
