Isn't this nearly always true in any situation?  You have the cannots, the do-nots and the can do and will.  Bimodal distribution.



Reasonable extrapolation suggests the same would apply to local businesses.  Some were growing and really cooking, others just holding on and paying the bills.  While everything is shut down, many have time to really think about how to be competitive, find more efficient ways to do their operations and so on.  

When the CDC suggests it is OK to get back to work, we will see new, highly efficient operating modes in some of those businesses, and others will be on their way outta town.  We will soon be a new world with new needs and new don’t need anymores.
