San Antonio Small Businesses Going Virtual During COVID-19


We're checking in on everyone out there who may be going stir crazy. Do you feel you have this social distancing down to a science? Well what is the science behind social distancing? Social distancing is the practice of reducing close contact between people to slow the spread of infection or disease. Social distancing measures include limiting large groups of people coming together, closing buildings, and cancelling events.


It is our responsibility as a small business to make sure our community stays safe and our families stay healthy. Whether you’re staying working from home by yourself or sharing your space with your family and kids, we hope to give you ideas of how to spend your time in a healthy and happy manner.
