Why is it Fortune 500 companies can remain open but small businesses can’t? What motivation is there for politicians to deem them as essential and capable of being safe but a small business can’t?

Large businesses may have more protocols in place to better identify/ test for Covid. Some small businesses may have shoddy procedures or just don’t factor in every precaution.

Then why not just issue protocols instead closing? Isn’t that bias?

True. Plus do you think the govt thinks that small companies won’t sue or take them to court vs big companies?

Yup, also if they went under the Gov would have to bail them out which seems to be the new norm... you know tax payers $ bailing out private companies with CEOs that make 250mil/ yr

Who would enforce them? Local governments are already at a restricted budget/ workforce. The police can issue warnings then fines after offenses, but they only can respond to so many safely.

I take it you’re one who approves of letting criminals out and putting hair dressers in jail?

If the hairdresser (in NY) defies state lockdown orders then potentially infects dozens of customers for a couple hundred bucks, then yes fines/ other punishments should be given out.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree. Deeming one company as safer due to size is bias in my eyes. And putting small business owners in jail is a violation of the Constitution while reeking of hypocrisy.

I don’t run the online store. I lack the skill set when it comes to coding and store back end work. I am thankful and blessed to have a son who is computer savvy. Feel free to email him @ support@truckmountforums.com and he will help you.

I don’t think it’s a bias based on size, but on efficient protocols and resources to respond if there is a case. Example: stores/ fast food being able to ‘sanitize/ disinfect’ if a positive case is discovered. Small businesses may not test as frequently and may not report cases if discovered for fear of reprisal by govt./ customers. Government tries to base lockdown orders on need and what some people who may believe the virus is a complete hoax see as essential like hair solons, bars, dine-in restaurants, nails, or in some controversial case packed churches during a pandemic are not necessary or worth it to stay open until more is done to limit the spread better (vaccine) or minimize effects on people (health care). Just letting every business open because they complain a lot sets a bad precedent and could worsen progress that has been made.

I respect your view but disagree. Small business's many times are much more conscientious and less likely to break protocol. It is not a hoax, it is a flu. Just like the Swine, Bird and the Seasonal Flu.

There is already a flu vaccine yet 85,000 die a year. Do you believe a C-19 vaccine will save the day?

Hopefully there’s a good vaccine so things can get close to the way they were before. I think the reaction to Covid 19 was so drastic because 1) the virus unlike the seasonal flu was new so one knew what the effects were or how it spread and we still don’t know everything about it so it caught us off guard, 2) the U.S. govt. was slow to respond (cause of China and WHO minimizing it) and took a while to get decent testing for asymptomatic people and 3) it’s more contagious than SARS so more procedures had to be done to prevent against lots of people becoming infected and possibly making health care resources (ventilators, PPE) stretched thin.

A small business can change course in a short time, Really like large companies may not have shoddy procedures haha haha

Large companies have COOs/ Chief operating officers which deal with the operations side of things so they can use their vast resources to work with advisors and better implement procedures while buying supplies that may be limited to the general public (sports leagues getting Covid tests for possibly asymptomatic people way before the general public).
