We know we have a duty to our customers in providing them with the best good and customer service. We also have a duty of care of our employees to protect them and allow them to work remotely and flexibly where possible, so we can overcome the disruption and challenges we currently face. 

The closure has affected our small business among countless others but we have to acknowledge that health and safety comes first. While times are challenging, we are confident that we can ride through the storm as a collective.

The countrywide lockdowns around the planet means that the world has come to a standstill, the likes of which it has not seen since the end of the second world war. The world has never felt more connected than right now and the responsibility of each individual in fighting for their fellow beings have never been greater.

A lockdown move is simply not enough to fight the coronavirus epidemic considering the Virus has already reached the far corners of the globe. The spread is touching new high every day and no with vaccine or treatment available that can cure the virus, it is time for all of us to act responsibly.

Here are some ways you can combat the spread of the virus:-

1. Social Distancing

Introverts like myself will find it to be a cakewalk but it's high time for all to practice social distancing, which simply implies to staying at home. Avoid coming in contact with people who are sick, even if they are not infected with the virus. Remember, prevention is always better than the cure.

2. Six Feet Distance

6 feet is the magic number here as experts reckon respiratory secretions from COVID-19 can't travel beyond the aforesaid distance. Find anyone coughing or sneezing, just slide on past the 6 feet mark distance away from said person and you should be safe from the threat of an infection.

3. Wash your HANDS frequently

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Keep your hands sanitized (use a sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol) whenever possible. 

Human beings touch their faces multiple times on an average every waking minute. This is the easiest route for the virus to travel from its breeding grounds to your eyes, nose or mouth where it can cause an infection.

Although, not quite literally, it is advised that you cover your mouth and nose as well as your hands to dampen any VIRUS' hopes of getting all up in your sh*t.

Disinfect everything that you touch every frequently. From doorknobs, lights, handles, surfaces, TV remotes, drawers, washbasin to toilets, make sure all possible chill spots for the virus are wiped clean.

6. Act as if you are already infected.

It is one of the most widely given and effective tips out there. COVID-19 depends on humans to spread the virus and removing oneself from that equation will hamper the spread greatly. This calls for self isolation and distancing oneself from the society. Acting as if you already have the virus makes sure you involuntarily follow the protocols mentioned above.
