Cases of the Novel Coronavirus have been increasing exponentially both in the United States and worldwide. Since we’ve last covered the topic, Europe has become the largest outbreak zone on the planet, and multiple states’ governors have issued stay-at-home orders. Our nation is quarantined, and even the Houston Lockdown has begun. Restaurants and bars have closed to all but delivery or drive-thru options, all major events have been canceled for the foreseeable future, and there are even attempts in congress to get a relief stimulus passed to provide most Americans with $1,000 cash or more.
Houston adopted a lot of these safety measures several days before the time of writing this article. In some ways, the city is faring better than most at keeping citizens informed of what’s going on. For example; here is a form that tells you if a restaurant is open in Houston and if they allow delivery and take-out, courtesy of the Houston Chronicle.
But despite careful handling of the situation, it still seems like we’re not quite out of the woods yet. Diligence and patience with our situation are paramount. Tests are becoming more widely available, allowing us to get a better sense of who is actually infected and allowing the confirmed number of cases to skyrocket. It may still get worse before it gets better.
An Update On What We’re Doing For The Houston Lockdown
As it stands right now, Guardian Safe & Lock is continuing to stay open following some internal policy changes that we have since made available to the public over social media and our newsletter, As The Cylinder Turns. As the virus continues to progress, we’ve decided to share them here on our blog as well, and you can read them below:
We’ve also released a video detailing the state of affairs here which we’ll also share here:
