    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.
