How to fight Coronavirus as a small business
In light of this pandemic, it's essential to stay updated on health guidelines from trusted organizations like the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or Public Health Emergency. Please ensure you're getting information from reliable sources to avoid spreading misinformation.
This is what we did to keep our business running smoothly and responsibly.
We encourage our coworkers to work from home if they're not feeling well, or if they traveled recently.
We canceled all events, workshops, fairs, and appointments.
We postponed our business offerings to a later date - unfortunate but in our opinion unavoidable.
We've updated our time frames - we made sure to let customers and business partners know from the outset that delivery may take longer than usual.
We insist on online shopping - we modified our payment options accordingly.
We created hygiene stations in the stockroom and made sure our team is following protocol to keep everyone healthy.
These are just a few changes we made. This pandemic is a huge blow to small business, however, we believe that everybody should ramp up their focus on social responsibility and make sacrifices.
