We all survived the slog through the month of April with mandated everything. Now, it appears, we are slowly “re-opening” the state of Florida and/or NE Florida—however you choose to view the situation.
For us, we were never “closed”—we simply adapted how we work to the mandates. It was challenging at times and not from an implementation standpoint…it was more of a behavioral adjustment but we made it work!
We used our hunker down time to get our updated web portal ready for launch. We learned how to integrate stopping the spread into our daily routines. Aside from frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer, we’ve got gloves and masks added to our “uniform”. We’ve updated our operational protocols to Covid 19 standards as have virtually all of our vendors. We’re adapting.
Now, we can look forward to seeing some others get the relief they’ve been waiting on. The IRS site is fixed (sort of). We’re told unemployment is starting to flow. Businesses are seeing some funding coming in and most of all, limited and cautious re-engagement is happening!
Restaurants and retail can open with restrictions/limited capacity. It’s not ideal but it’s a start. Let’s be good stewards of this progress and maintain our social distances, going out only when necessary. Let’s wear masks when asked or be prepared to be asked and comply. Let’s make this work!
