A Memo From Management…
From Colin Martodom, COO
It was a normal Sunday afternoon at 2:30 pm as I stood in a hockey rink in Anaheim when I saw the news. “California Governor Newsom Closes All Bars, Cuts Restaurant Capacities To Stop Coronavirus” was the headline. What?? You can’t be serious. I recall thinking that St. Patrick’s Day was merely two days away, they can’t possibly close bars for the “drinkingest” day of all! Now, nearly one year later it’s surreal to think of what has transpired over the past 12 months. It’s been a rollercoaster of closures, re-openings, re-closings, outdoor, limited indoor, and on it goes.
It’s easy to get lost in all of the rules we’ve had to follow and the changes we’ve had to adjust to but after all the dust settles what matters most is the health and welfare of ourselves and those we love. For most of us, we can say we’ve made it through. The worst is behind us. The virus data is looking better and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. But let’s not forget about the hundreds of thousands of families that have lost loved ones and never take for granted the millions of front line workers, volunteers, and hard working people that have sacrificed their time and most importantly their safety to be away from those they are closest to. By committing to following the simple yet effective measures that save lives, we’ll be able to establish a level of normalcy that will benefit everyone.
