    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    Hi,
    New Zealand goes into a month minimum shutdown of all but essential services as of midnight today.

    When you start trying to decide what is an essential service our whole society is interdependent. Who would of thought that
    supermarket workers are essential for instance? But they are....if we want food.....we buy it...and where from?

    Yes and No.

    Nothing has changed for us. Business as usual. (We make medical products). However the guitar factory next door: PRS, is shutdown.
    They don’t have the space to distance one employee from another greater than a few feet. If you have any type of gathering where social distancing can’t be achieved... you’ll be shutdown.
    So, we’re in our first day of shutdown in Maryland. Nothing has changed but the topic of conversation and we’ve a nice new cleaning lady that sanitizes where any individual has been and working or incidental contact with surfaces. So... I make a mess and she cleans it up.

    Being in England we only have to have a half inch of snow & my fellow countryman & women clear the supermarket shelves of bread & milk !! So I expect no less from the corona virus panic - demic. The death rate for this virus is actually less than the annual death rate for the normal `flu so unless it mutates or there are those of us that have underlying health issues then it`s no biggy . Is it ?

    I reckon there is actually more chance of dying of the hysteria surrounding this virus than the virus itself but then I am not an epidemiologist .
    The infection rate against the death rate is minimal afterall.
    I just recently started my business literally in the fall and I am very panicked. It seems that support for small businesses will be coming now, but I still can’t sleep and eat, I have developed unusual anxiety. How do you fight against it? Does cbd help? I want to start using this, but I don’t know how to dab.

    And now only another two weeks later, we have 85.991 confirmed Covid-19 cases in the USA. Mora than China. Creepy. Hope the health system will manage it and not too many people will lose their jobs.

    Corona disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus, i think most of the small and medium size business are most affected from Corona virus. lots of the countries announced lock down, this lock down may affect the MSME sectors.

    My business is completely shut down. I build film set scenery and props, we have 2 cncrp machines and a buildyourcnc machine. We have parts for upgrading to a co2 laser and plasma cutter abandoned in my shop. We also have a series of ultimaker 3d printers We just upgraded all our software licenses last year and trained 4 new employees/coworkers. We upgraded to an s30 ATC spindle. Needless to say maybe I expanded to fast last year. I'm currently using up the last of my resources to cut/print covid 19 gear to donate. I had to layoff staff my husband and I are worried. My commercial space is played up until july and luckily some of our setup is at a warner bros studio. We have a fair amount of equipment at our home. We are super worried come july can we pay rent. It's one thing to skimp on maintenance during tough times it's another to loose your equipment and worse case have to abandon as cost of moving is to high. Were exploring ideas for some income during the crisis doing plastic sneeze guards in retail etc.. being self employed puts us in a grey area for accessing relief and small business initiatives are slowest to come in canada but they've asked the small business to do most. Any ideas to retool in a meaningful fashion were open to.

    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    This week we had our first supply chain interruption. We sent parts out for powder coat a couple weeks ago, normally get a 1 week turnaround. We were informed yesterday that they were not going to be able complete the order due to employee absences at their facility. We are scrambling to find an alternative vendor to fill our needs.

    We are still shipping product from inventory, but have limited product available. We sell a recreational oriented product. Our sales have dropped slightly, but the product is somewhat seasonal so we can't yet get a handle on the effect of this on our sales for the season.

    Hi,
    I think Trump is out of his depth.......he has failed to lead the country and as a consequence many many more people are infected than might
    have been if the Federal government had lead the way.

    How is it the the US, the wealthiest and most sophisticated nation on the globe missed the opportunity to minimize the spread of this disease?

    The US is leading the 'dumbass' stakes.....for the moment. I suspect within a couple of weeks other nations like India, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
    Mexico and Indonesia will overtake the US and then will come a human tragedy that makes Trump's missteps seem as nothing.

    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    Covid is a very strange thing cause people have different opinions about it, some of them do not believe in it and others are really afraid and stay only in homes. My opinion is that it exists but mass media over estimate it.. I really do not know what will happen next with the situation in the world, because world economy is in decline and a lot of companies has close their activity.

    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    The pandemic has affected not only business operations, but also the life of humanity as a whole, and I think you've all noticed this. Fortunately, the company in which I work can afford to completely transfer employees to remote work without any negative consequences, but there are people who are not so lucky. Also, the pandemic has greatly affected my relatives. The doctors advised me to put my grandmother in a nursing home, but as the death rate in such institutions increased, we had to spend much more time searching for a really good home for the elderly, and in the end we chose the memory care facility in texas on the advice of a doctor we knew. Well, I hope in the near future humanity will be able to overcome this problem, and at the moment it remains only to buy masks and antiseptics...

    It seems to me that the epidemic has affected everyone and certainly influenced the development of business and created many problems for people, but you need to come up with new methods of business development and work

    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    The covid-19 pandemic has actually affected both my personal life and my business as well. The worst part was my depression doubled up by the lack of income and the fact that I still have to pay my employers. Man, 3 years ago, my business was just a freaking start-up, and my business plan was dusty as I did not have any money, and this damn pandemic has almost killed my business. Thankfully everything is going fine right now, and we are having a hell a lot of work, thanks GOD! I even need more employers as we have too much work.

    Re: Does the corona epidemic affect your current business operations?

    Of course, it did. I closed my store because of the corona. My store worked for so many years and served a lot of people. Now I have to find another place for my store. By the way, If you are interested, I am working right now on a project helping people looking for spaces to rent, people that are in the same situation as me, and not only. Here is the website: https://osdoro.com.sg/office-space-for-rent/. In case there is something I can help you with, feel free to text me. Have a nice one, guys.
