How to Prepare Your Small Business for the Second Wave of COVID-19

The other day I was headed to the gym, you know, usual morning gym routine type of thing.

Truth be told, I didn’t really feel like going. But, I knew my trainer would’ve given me a tough time if I didn’t go… so, what the heck, I went. 

I drove up to the plaza, put my mask on, walked up to the front door, gave it a good yank but there was one problem.

It didn’t open.

I was confused. I already booked my time slot online so I should easily be able to get inside.

As I gave the entrance a good scan, a piece of paper hanging on the door instantly caught my attention.

Ahhh, it all made sense right then and there.

They were closed due to COVID-19’s second wave.

I’ll be honest with you, part of me was relieved I didn’t have to go to the gym, but as I stepped back and looked around the parking lot of the plaza – I noticed something a little more startling.

It was empty. 

No cars parked anywhere, stores were closed, and it felt completely lifeless. 

Now it really hit me.

COVID-19 wave two is officially here.

Now, for small business owners, it’s likely/probably only a matter of time until the effects of COVID-19 wave two hit your industry. Some businesses will close temporarily. Some will adapt. Some will get busier and have to adapt at the same time (I’m thinking PPE manufacturers).

I mean, we’ve seen the effects of the first wave.  Small businesses across Canada felt the impact, especially during the pandemic’s peak. 

And the worst part is, that peak might be coming back to Canada yet again according to the World Health Organization. 

I was watching a Youtube video recently, it was about how to prepare your business for Coronavirus, and in the video the gentleman said…

“…fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

And I think this phrase describes what’s happening right now pretty well. 

When Coronavirus first hit, no one expected it.

Businesses had to learn to go fully remote, business models needed to be adapted for a virtual environment, online phishing emails were at an all time high, and so on. 

Heck, I was even let go from my previous job due to that unexpected first wave. 

But now that the second wave is coming, we have no excuse not to be prepared. 

So, to help you prepare for the second wave, our Human Experience (HX) team has put together a Pandemic Planning Toolkit.

Pandemic Planning Toolkit

Okay wait, hear me out, I know “toolkit” doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing ever but, let me tell you something… 

When I first got my hands on the Toolkit, I had a quick skim of it…

… and I was absolutely blown away.

I’m going to try my best here to explain the toolkit in one sentence:

“It’s literally like a handy go to manual that’ll show you exactly how to manage any situation you might face as a business owner during COVID-19.”

Seriously, this is gold.  And you know what the best part is?  This toolkit isn’t just for COVID-19.  

It can be used for any similar situation that may happen in the future. 

And I’m not even a CEO. 

What’s Inside

Let me give you a little taste of what’s inside, okay?

(Also, please keep this between you and I, because Juliana, my boss, doesn’t know I’m doing this).

That’s one tiny screenshot from one single page! Can you imagine what the rest contains?

Notice how it’s SUPER practical and not just some “raa raa, you got this” type of thing?

But can I tell you something that might REALLY surprise you?
