(KERO) — Small businesses worry they may never recover from the financial fallout caused by the pandemic.

A report from the Federal Reserve showed nearly 90-percent of small business owners say their business has not returned to pre-pandemic levels. More than 30-percent say their business will probably not survive without more government help.

The report was completed in September and October before the most recent round of stimulus but it shows how close many small businesses are to closing their doors.
