Anyone see in any business worry from this virus. I am a bit worried but continue to march on. I haven’t seen any loss of work yet. Stay safe out there folks.

It’s waaaay too early to affect anything but panicking stocks and airlines

this business of impact on the oil industry is ludicrous

oh no! We haven’t sold billions of gallons in the last three days! Bail us out mr president!

that’s a ton of crap right there

I think things will be disrupted for at least a month or two. School and college closings are hitting people all around me. White collar people can work from home, they can be productive, so they should be ok. My daughter works in a restaurant, I bet business will drop, she won't get as many shifts, get less in tips when she does get a shift, etc. I wouldn't want to work in a retail environment dealing with dozens of people all day long.

Until we get a handle on how widespread this thing is, the fear and doubt will prevail. The lack of testing is preventing us from learning how far and fast it is catching. Testing is the key, and we're way behind right now.

I spend 1/2 time in Newport, RI. It is a tourist/vacation town. The entire town is dependent on tourists from all over the world. The main streets are lined with restaurants, inns, and tourist shops. They just cancelled the huge St Pats Day parade. Thousands of people usually come to this parade, they flood the bars, inns, etc. Gone.

So we may feel secure and safe, but we are all in this together, and many of our fellow Americans are going to have a rough couple of months.

With the virus’ spread ramping up I’ve been wondering what happens to business in the event of a mandatory quarantine.


I’m solo so I could still mow and not be in contact with anyone, but I’m not sure if gas stations would still be open. I can store up some gas and cut back on the frequency of my cuts to save as much fuel as possible. Spring growth gets out of control quick if you don’t stay on top of it though.


Anyone have a plan for keeping business operational in the event of a full on shut down due to covid-19?
