I expected the worst but so far it’s business as usual. I expect in the next couple days they will lock down our state as much of California is already doing so that will put us to a grinding halt.

@rob allen

Are any masks available. I saw you mention. I want a few cases. We are working with our local hospital and gearing up to help overworked Drs and nurses with their home cleaning and sanitization. Most of the products and procedures we already use are now showing up on approved Gov N list as well as published guidelines.

We are going to be working at costs or pro bonos............

Please let me know if you have any n95 so I can get you my credit card number ASAP

I am not in tune with the online store as that is my sons area. As far as I know (and I will ask him later today when I see him) he has a source of several 1000 that came available to him.

I fully expect to come to a grinding halt for 2-3 months.

Everyone needs to prepare now.

Winter is here.

Once this Corona passes,

The economic landscape will be ugly.

For those levered up..............this is starting to materialize into a margin call of epic proportions.

Usually we are busy two weeks in advance. I admit, next week looks weak. Very weak.

When they say "shelter in place" that's it, hope your ready. My wife shut down her barber shop yesterday. So far a few repeats, rentals and one dentist office (shut down for now). Just going day by day. My only complaint is WHERE"S THE TOILET PAPER??????????

This is where being an O/O has its advantages. Low overhead.

Its also where cleaning for older folks works best. They have money in good times and bad. They dont have kids around and usually arent home when Im cleaning anyway.

Have not had a cancellation yet. Hope saying that doesnt jinx me.
