Well, we are all stuck in our houses, together but apart, trying to do the right thing so that we can get to the other side of the Covid19 mountain. My business is actually considered an Essential Business because we sell disinfectants & sanitizing agents, which are much needed right now! Fortunately, it is only Joanne and me at the company, so it is like my home away from home anyway. There is light at the end of this infectious tunnel, there always is a Yin for the Yang, nature has to balance. What it will look like, once we get to the other side, may be quite different for a while, but we learn to adapt. I suspect we will be wearing some sort of personal protection for a while, masks and gloves, but if everyone does their part we will defeat this pandemic.
I must say, though, it is depressing to see many not doing what is asked of them, not wearing their masks, not maintaining the recommended 6 foot distance. I find this to be so foolish, on their part but, more important, so disrespectful to the first responders, hospitals and nurses, who are putting their own lives at risk to take care of those who need them! It's as if they think they cannot be affected, or infect others. This is an extremely contagious, air-borne virus, which means it can travel even further with the wind outside. It can travel through ventilation systems, making a small surrounding, such as a restaurant, a petrie dish for contamination. This is why we must all do our part to stay at home, wear PPE when in markets or pharmacies, so that we can all be safe and get back to the normal life we once had!!
Due to the fact that most businesses, including our member businesses, are closed, due to this pandemic, we have decided to forgo our Gold/Silver membership and Renewal list, since there is no easy way to verify.

Thank you
