In the wake of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the past couple weeks have been trying on many levels. Families are trying to understand how to stay safe and adjust to a “new normal” for the foreseeable future. Small business owners are navigating a very different (and in some cases difficult) marketplace. Contractors are no exception, and nobody knows for sure what the coming weeks and months will look like as guidance and rules continue to roll out. The only thing we know for sure is that things will be abnormal for a while.
