As everyone in the world is acutely aware, we are presently faced with a public health crisis of epic proportions. Covid-19 has affected almost every aspect of our lives and is causing disruption to commercial activity in a manner not seen in decades. Some cities and states have experienced more disruption than others and most states have issued a statewide shutdown of “nonessential” businesses.
