For sure and I think there will be a new normal as well. With so many cases out there and with the disease spread so easily totally eliminating it will be challenging it even if a vaccine is found. Could be cycles of spreads and cures non stop.

Well as the weather warms up and the humidity goes up, that'll help kill the virus and buy some time

Maybe, but as more people go out during summertime people will have a hard time staying inside and "'isolating"

From what I've heard that shouldn't be too much of an issue come the 20 degree weather. Hopefully that's accurate and that gives them some much needed time to get the damn vaccine ready, mass produced and out there

Some big numbers but it looks like Ontario may have peaked which is a good thing should it continue.

It's looking like the numbers are plateauing which is very good. It appears as if a couple States are going to relax a lot of the rules and start opening up. I am liking that things might be starting on a slow road back to normalcy

I hope so too, of course as the numbers are starting to level off people bring up the Spanish flu when the second wave was way more deadly then the first.  i'm sure a lot of small businesses are chomping at the bit to get back to normal, must be tough for them. It will be interesting to see what "normal" will be moving forward as this virus will be around for a long time considering how many people are infected world wide.

The problem is that it's a very fine line between opening up too soon and opening up too late...opening up when there is nothing left to open up to

I would imagine car sales would have a lot to do with your plant opening or closing too would it not, i'm guessing Auto sales have taken a big hit over the recent months.

Yeah 100%. The lot inventory back at the end of March slightly above where the like to be, meaning there were a few more vehicles available then they like to have. We are a more of a "on time delivery" supply rather than a build and stockpile so we should be in a better position than the "Big 3" once shit opens back up. Having said that, I don't see people rushing out to buy a vehicle just because a car lot has opened....it'll be a few months at least after things resume

Yeah we're back for the long haul. last week 1 shift worked Tues/Thurs, and the other shift worked wed/fri. This week were back to 2 shifts and running 50% capacity, next week we'll be 75% and then back to 100% after that. They are telling us year over year sales for April were only down 50% from last year and May is only down 20% so if the numbers are accurate we will most likely be doing a shit ton of overtime come July

As of tomorrow ( Sat. Jan. 9 2021) Quebec is imposing a curfew between 8pm and 5am.......Ontario is looking at doing their own curfew. WTF is wrong with our spineless politicians

They put us in lockdown to up North and we have a fraction of the cases and only one case has even made it to the hospital in the last year.

It looks like it, and just as the lock down has happened we have had a little 'outbreak" ourselves....I think having a lockdown also causes infections as people for the most part are stuck inside together where it can easily spread.

not an easy time to be a politician, the medical community wants a lockdown as some hospitals are getting overwhelmed and people who are getting locked down are suffering from job/business loses which are devastating as well. My big prob with all this is right now we are locked down but Walmart is allowed to be open because they sell groceries but you can still go and buy clothes, video games and anything else in the store....meanwhile a small business downtown has to shut its doors....I would be pissed if I was a small business owner.

Very True.....I mean I dislike Doug Ford, as a federal and provincial member of the party I did not vote for him in the leadership race, in fact he was a distant 3rd for me, however he really is in a no win situation.....you've got the far left who will never vote for him then you have a big % of the party who are pissed with his lockdown measures who will now not vote for him and then you have most of the Libs who are pissed he's not doing enough.

As for walmart, costco etc...yeah complete bullshit. I've heard rumors of a class action lawsuit being filed by a number of small businesses which have been forced to close
