Every Wednesday night, I meet at Striders in Grandville for a weekly group run. A few years ago, I started frequenting the group runs and since then have made some really great friends. I’ve had the opportunity to train together for several races and have shared some awesome moments along the way.
By the end of March, Striders was forced to close to the public due to coronavirus. Unfortunately, that meant our group runs had to be put on hold too. While I completely expected this to happen and glad it did for the safety of others, a shakeup in routine can always be a bummer.
Nearly every business is now feeling this shakeup. Businesses are being forced to adapt by implementing new cleaning procedures, adjusted hours, and new employee policies. Adapting to these changes can be hard and communicating these changes to your customers can be even harder.
