If you were in the wedding industry during 9/11, like I was, then you learned that the small businesses who kept promoting their services and didn't pull back, came out on top, while the others had to close their doors.
That's why you'll notice that many businesses are finding ways to keep their employees working (tele-commuting, video conferencing, etc.) so that when this passes, and it will pass, potential customers will still know their name.
The businesses who show strength during trying times are the ones that people will look at as stable and worthy of their business. Yes, take precaution, but also take your stand and show potential customers that you're strong and stable.
People tend to flock to the beacons of light during times like this. Don't run! Get creative but stay calm. You'll be so happy after this is over that you didn't let 6-8 weeks of bad business make you close up shop.
We care deeply about both your family AND your business that feeds them. We also care about our own employees and their families.
