The situation in Victoria has shown that this pandemic can escalate quickly from a situation where they almost had the spread under control [averaging around 9 new cases per day through May] to a Stage 3 Lockdown in a very short period of time.

As responsible business owners we need to make sure that our businesses are part of the solution and not part of the problem.

To do this, we need to double down on hygiene strategies within our business, and be visibly sanitising tables, chairs and contact surfaces after each customer departs. I say visibly because your customers are definitely taking notice. Recently I visited the Blue Mountains for a short 3 day getaway and sadly, 2 of the cafes we dined at for breakfasts were not wiping down and sanitising between customers.

Planning Prevents Poor Performance

While hopefully here in NSW we might avoid a second wave, having a plan to move forward with your business if that should happen makes sense. The first lockdown pretty much caught most businesses by surprise and while cafes and restaurants did respond with strategies there was not much forethought involved. We were flying by the seat of our pants.

Now is the time to re-analyse how your first response worked, and armed with some knowledge of how a lockdown looked like in your business design a strategy for success. If there are changes to be made and more ideas to implement then having a clear way forward is the answer. Don't leave anything to chance.
