Etiquette in the age of COVID-19

Last week I received a phone call from a kind, yet frustrated, gentleman who proceeded to tell me about an experience he had at a local chain store. He explained that a few of the employees were not wearing a mask. Since he and his wife are elderly and concerned about their health because of their vulnerability to COVID-19, they approached the manager to complain. The manager told them that he would talk to the employee and have it fixed. The next time the man and his wife visited the same store, they saw that some of the employees were not wearing masks, including the manager.

LEDC Update

The “Great Reopening” is going swimmingly for Linden. As of last Friday, our restaurants were allowed to expand from 25% interior capacity to 50% and this past weekend was certainly a busy one for them. I’m happy to see everyone still carefully observing health and distancing guidelines as well. We are extremely fortunate in Cass county to have had no deaths from COVID-19 thus far, but this virus has still affected many of us and our neighbors in significant and impactful ways. Only by striking a careful balance between restarting commerce and maintaining public health can we navigate these reopening efforts successfully. I’m happy to say I believe we’re progressing along this here-to-fore unknown path of reenergizing a shutdown economy in the right way.
