The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted everybody’s lives in America and, basically, the whole world. While the health effects are most concerning, it has wreaked havoc with businesses as well.
In the face of a global pandemic, there’s only so much we can do. But we are not helpless. You can prepare your Norcross, GA, area business.
Whether you manage an office in Peachtree City, a retail store in Stone Mountain, or a bank in Norcross, your business has certainly been affected by the Coronavirus. Many of these businesses have already closed. If you have closed, all you can do is communicate carefully and honestly with your staff. Avoid layoffs as much as possible, but many small businesses in Georgia just won’t be able to keep their staff on the payroll if they can’t stay open. In such cases, be honest and sympathetic with your employees and stress the temporary nature of this outbreak.
If you can afford to shut down temporarily, do so. If you manage an office where your employees can work remotely, let them. More Georgians staying home now means the shorter the COVID-19 outbreak will last. But not every business can close; some are essential and must stay open. One such business are grocery stores.
If you manage a grocery store in Norcross, Peachtree City, Stone Mountain, or nearby in Georgia, you need to come up with a plan. Talk with your employees about how you can best serve the public while minimizing the risk of spreading the disease. Unfortunately, face masks are in short supply at the time of writing and healthcare workers need the N95 masks the most, so don’t use any of those. But if you have other masks for your employees, give them to them. Make sure everybody maintains a six-foot distance from each other, including in the aisles, at the checkout, and lining up outside the store if necessary.
Signage can play an important role in minimizing the COVID-19 outbreak in Norcross and nearby areas of Georgia. Instead of using makeshift signs and tape on the floor, consider getting properly made signage and maybe even floor graphics. Peachtree Signs & Graphics can design and manufacture a business banner, front desk sign, or other type of sign that informs customers and staff of your business’s COVID-19 strategy. Floor graphics can remind patrons to remain six feet apart and maybe even direct shoppers through the aisles in a one-way pattern, thus reducing contact.

Michael Maltusch and his team were very prompt in service and gave us some great suggestions to reduce our costs for all of our signs and also did a great job. I would recommend them highly.
