The news around COVID-19 hit me suddenly. I was in the middle of processing a transaction for a customer, when my coworker came to tell me that we’d be under a lockdown starting at midnight. It explained a lot: the rush of customers withdrawing large amounts of cash, the endless busy traffic in the parking lot, the outlandishly long lines at the supermarket across the street, the continuous messages blowing up my phone... I looked at her worriedly, unsure of how we would be affected.
It seems like everything we hear about today is the COVID-19 pandemic, but one thing has been made clear: Center for Disease Control (CDC) now recommends wearing a face mask out in public. While N95 face masks are recommended for health care workers, we as part of the general public should all be wearing a type of hand sewn cloth face masks when running our essential errands outside.
I want to call everyone to action in doing our part to help one another during these anxious times. The COVID-19 pandemic has driven individuals to stock up on much needed supplies. Yet more than ever, now is the time to be compassionate to each other. We need to share our resources, maintain our six feet distance, wash our hands diligently, and clean our surfaces.
Remember to be kind. If you're part of an industry which allows you to work from home with a steady income still flowing through, reach out to those whose jobs may be compromised during this time to see how you can help. Support small businesses, whether it may be restaurants or independent apparel brands - and especially support health workers.
