It’s a challenging time, and we understand you may be struggling with how to maintain everyday activities.
The KSC Team and I would like to offer a few simple ideas for you that we hope will assist you and ease your concerns:
- Use social media and email to share updates with your clients. Here’s a great example –
A restaurant in Tomahawk shared this so that folks would feel confident in continuing to patronize the business.
- Could you use a virtual meeting option? We have a GoToMeeting account that we’re happy to share with you at no cost.
- Share factual information from trustworthy sources.
- For Business Owners – https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/organizations/businesses-employers.html.
- You can share these resources on your social media channels, or post these informational flyers in your business – https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/communication/factsheets.html.

As we work together to safeguard our families, our community and ourselves, here are great words from Mark Twain – “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
