Jason and Alan had the privilege of speaking with Dr. Gary DeWood from Spear Education about what we can expect during the Coronavirus crisis. Gary's message is one that we all could use right now and we're grateful for him giving us some time. Some of the things we discussed:

  • What do you do when you find yourself at the edge of the cliff and you don't know what to do?
  • This is a "government mandated" economic downturn which makes it interesting and scary
  • What should we be doing with our teams? What about the potential bill being passed?
  • Tax credits vs. tax "cut"
  • Do a 4 week "break even"
  • Own the fear/angst
  • "It's hard to make a plan when you don't know what the rules are"
  • Furlough vs. layoff
  • What should we expect with regard to infection control? Are "universal precautions" still universal?
  • testing and how many people actually have the virus?
  • hopeful information about this virus
  • what's a the story on the n95 mask
  • How is coronavirus like a horrible game of telephone
