This is a hard time for all of us, it is definitely not something anyone is used to. Many of us are able to work from home, but for restaurants and other local businesses, that is not an option. There are so many ways we can keep each other safe as well as support your normal breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drink spots while we practice social distancing.
Even with these alternative options, please keep everyone safe by washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds, sneeze and cough into your elbow, don’t touch anything you don’t need to touch, and just be kind to everyone.
I will keep this post updated as much as I can, so please keep an eye on it! If you notice something missing (this is a work in progress) please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Before I go into what each business is offering, here are a couple ways you can help them: purchase a gift card for future use, order take out/delivery (don’t forget to tip!), share the great stories you have of any establishment online- through social media or leave them a great review, and if they are offering online classes or demonstrations, sign up! That will help both you and them. Also, Instead of asking for a refund for a concert or show, hold your tickets until the event is either rescheduled, ask for a credit to use later, or wait until there is another you wish to attend and ask for an exchange. Please give businesses extra time to respond if you send an inquiry, they are figuring out the best way to navigate the situation for themselves, customers, clients, employees, and their own families.
