As of right now, the CDC is recommending that people cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 10 people or more throughout the United States. In addition, several states and cities are making decisions right now with regard to estate sales and whether or not they can be held. As such, we are promoting and scheduling online estate sales in lieu of our traditional in-home sales. In addition, we are actively assessing and scheduling new estate sales as requested for future in-home events.
We hope all businesses that involve event gatherings will join us in putting the well-being of our fellow Americans first. While this certainly wasn’t an enjoyable decision to make, and while we’re sympathetic to the economic ripple effects this will have on so many, we remain resolute that this is the right decision. Individually and collectively, we all have a responsibility to our community and country to work together to help impede the spread of COVID-19, and because we know that limited personal contact is a critical factor, it makes sense to limit that even though it’s something our business revolves around.
We each have a small part to play in triumphing over the adversity this crisis has created, and we are committed to doing what we can so our country can begin to recover quickly, and emerge stronger than ever.
