The exponential growth of the virus throughout the country seems to have slowed or leveled off in some places, but the threat of getting infected is absolutely still present. All the same, people (possibly including you) are worried about their livelihoods, paying their rent, and keeping their businesses alive.

While it’s still hard to tell how the Coronavirus will impact us in the long term, it’s become a subject that’s impossible to ignore. While some are advocating we prepare to be quarantined, potentially for months, others are saying the virus is nothing more than a common cold. The World Health Organization takes a more middle-of-the-road approach, advising we take precautions without becoming alarmed. Whether the coronavirus is a dangerous pandemic or just a common cold, there is the possibility that your business could be affected due to public perception and fear. We’re going to empower you to make informed decisions for your business.
