Many people are concerned about what is going on during this Coronavirus pandemic. We at Anphira already work from home, so things are business as usual for us.

While the media may be giving you a lot of mixed messages, we want you to know, that emergencies are something that we handle pretty well. The owner’s husband is an emergency manager with the government and has dealt with a wide range of emergencies over his nearly 20 year career.

We are not planning for this pandemic to be done in a few weeks. We are currently planning for it to many months. In fact, we personally have no plans for any socializing until November 2020 (this being written in March 2020). We also realize that November 2020 may be optimistic. This is our PERSONAL opinion and does not reflect any official government position (which as of this writing the most recent estimate is August 2020).

This pandemic will be causing a lot of economic upheaval. If your business is impacted by it and you need to suspend your website maintenance, please just let us know.
