People and businesses will be forced to live differently after COVID-19. The fact of the matter is that this virus will be with us for a long time. It may never be completely eradicated even when there is a vaccine.
Businesses that survive will have re-think they way they interact with customers to maintain physical distancing. Restaurants will be the last businesses to open so to survive, they will need to focus on take out and curb-side order service.
Individuals staying at home have been forced to purchase items online to a greater extent than before. Therefore, they will be converting to online shopping in droves.
For all of us, the future will be strong for those who improvise, adapt and overcome! Let's hope that most small businesses will be able, and willing to do so.
