It has been two months since I last communicated with you like this about the dramatic impact of COVID-19 on the stock market & our entire way of life. I have spoken personally with just about everyone and am profoundly grateful for the concern about myself and my family. Everyone is still healthy and now a bit more thankful to just be together.
As our states begin to reopen, life feels much different operating in this “new normal”. Some have had to adapt to new workplace protocol while others have been a casualty of budget cuts. I have heard from many of our clients about how much they missed their grandchildren or had never eaten at home so much! I have found a common theme: everyone is finding a new rhythm that works for their life and a gratefulness for those you share it with.
Our local branch office in Sterling Heights is now open to the public again, running meetings that cannot (or should not) be done over the phone. We do have our own social distancing guidelines which are clearly posted and easy to follow. The biggest change you will find is our lobby is “closed”. Instead, you will ring a doorbell for entrance then be escorted directly to the conference room where we sit six feet apart. We are also promoting handwashing for anyone that enters the branch and have reserved Monday mornings for those most at risk for ANY communicable illness. We closely follow CDC guidelines for social distancing, branch cleaning & in-person interactions. Your safety is our top priority.
You can rest assured that we remain 100% committed to our promise to you, our clients, as we continue to navigate both the volatile stock market and public health crisis. On behalf of the local branch in Michigan and home office team in Florida, we continue to wish good health for you and yours.
