Last week, we wrote about COVID-19 from a business perspective. Obviously, since then, a lot has changed. But, importantly, we must still not panic. In this post and the next three, we look at what’s next. Today, we consider what we should do now – business strategies. Tomorrow, we review what we should do now – work-at-home tips. Thursday, we examine what we should do now – cleanliness. Then, on Friday, we highlight what we should do now – activities to stay occupied.
The first two posts take a business-centered approach. The posts on Thursday and Friday take a person-centered approach.
To begin, read the short article from VietnamCredit by clicking on the image. And watch the video about Ford’s shifting focus — social responsibility in action.
Update from the author: For the most part, I stayed at home last week. Went out to the supermarket a couple of times and ate out once. However, as of today during my routine checkup, my endocrinologist (Dr. T) told me to stay at home. Period! And when Dr. T speaks, we listen. After all, he saved my life with his early discovery of my pancreatic cancer.
