The COVID-19 outbreak wasn’t a curve ball — the pitcher lit the fuse on a stick of dynamite and hurled it at home plate.

However, many businesses have scaled back production or have shutdown completely.

Being cheerful might help morale, but there still isn’t demand for your goods, or that raw material you need for production is still unavailable until next week. Instead, look for opportunities to improve your situation.
Unscheduled downtime is a frustrating and expensive problem, especially when it interferes with normal production. However, if you aren’t running your machines, take the opportunity improve your system’s performance.
