SUCCESSFUL PANDEMIC EMAILS
BY BRIAN O’CONNOR
Whether your business is still closed
or you’re beginning to reopen from the

time to do it.

precautions you are adopting
The safety of our customers has always
been our priority, and that instinct
has been amplified given the current
circumstances. That’s why we’ve been
enforcing social distancing and other
best practices in the midst of COVID-19.
Safety recommendations will likely
change according to the CDC and New
York State, but rest assured we’re staying
up-to-date. We’ll share this information
on our website as soon as we get it.

4. Tell them about status of
Unfortunately, we’re uncertain when
things will be “back to normal,” but
there are encouraging signs for the
coming weeks. We’re taking every precaution
to keep bending the curve. We
know you are too.
To us the most important thing is to
make sure that when we do reopen it’s
in a safe environment. We’ll be using enhanced
health and cleanliness protocols
such as social distancing stickers, hand
sanitizer stations, sneeze guards at the
front desk, etc.

We’re ready for the bounce back — and
we hope to see you there.
