During the first week of the COVID-19 pandemic, many small businesses in San Francisco closed their doors for the foreseeable future to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus and “flatten the curve.” More businesses across the country will be closing in the weeks to follow as the crisis continues to unfold. Countless business owners across the globe are left wondering when they’ll be able to re-open shop amidst an uncertain future.
It’s a difficult time to gauge when things will return to normal. Physical stores may be closing, but migrating a brick-and-mortar business to the internet is still an option — and for many is currently necessary.
