Small business in LA is moving quickly to adapt. I work for a food service staffing company and the bosses are already looking to transition the food service workforce to other areas that are needed right now, e.g., cleaning, security, manual labor. I think we're going to learn what this country is made of in the coming weeks. That may not be encouraging given who we are but you never know, maybe we'll surprise ourselves.

Corona virus is just the flu. The flu kills 500 people a week every year for the past 10 years just in America. Why is the government claiming that Coved 19 is such a concern? Watch out the government has something up its sleeve. Perhaps they will claim they need to quarantine everyone and then seize their guns.
