April 17, 2020- As a result of the extension of the quarantine period for an additional three (3) weeks through May 3, 2020, after almost four (4) weeks of lockdown, we believe it is now clear that even though we have all, in one way or another, made adjustments to deal with and adapt to the situation, we should recognize that the time for the reopening of our economy and its recovery will probably be much longer than originally anticipated. Yesterday, the White House published its Guidelines for Opening Up America Again providing the roadmap for states and territories to resume economic and commercial activity, which also make it clear that the reopening process will be prolonged and complicated.

To the extent that we have to adapt to this new reality, in its role as an employer, the private sector must be prepared to protect its employees, and in its role as a provider of goods and services, its clients.

In order to respond to this new state of affairs, at CCS we have organized a multidisciplinary group for the purpose of assisting you in the management of the various business issues that merit the utmost attention during and after the ongoing Pandemic.
