All the institutions are doing their utmost to help. Mortgage companies are allowing payment holidays, banks are providing support. Look at your monthly personal bills and research what options you have. Don’t leave this too late.
Remember this will end, so having payment holidays and adding them onto the end gives us all breathing space.
I must keep reiterating we are all in the same boat, every business will be impacted in some way either financially or through health issues. It is our responsibility as leaders to NOT cause the panic.
This was summed up recently by what Lily and I saw in Waitrose on Saturday where a man was having a go at staff because there wasn’t any hand sanitiser because in his words: ‘people were panic buying’. As I walked past, I commented to Lily that’s exactly what he was doing but he couldn’t see it.
Please see it! We can do our own thing to limit the spread through all the advice we get, we can use the measures that the Government has provided to limit outlay. We should have a small buffer in case of emergencies (new Zero strategy) and if it all goes wrong and there is a lock down, we are all in the same boat so the Government will step in to ensure survival.
I gather that if there is a lock down, the research indicates that after 14 days the virus is not considered a risk.
Nobody can survive too long without income so there will be measures to protect this and just delay our payments until this is under control.
