I'm going to take a guess and say that many of you find yourselves working from home today. And for the next several days. And a week ago, you didn't imagine that would happen. At least not so fast.
We here at Plastics News are with you, taking extra precautions, practicing the new skills of "social distancing" and figuring out what "flattening the curve" is all about.
What does that mean for readers? If everything goes as planned, you won't even notice. About half the staff already had worked remotely and the rest of us have worked off-site occasionally.
Today's Material Insights won't be shot in the Detroit studio, but other than that, we'll continue our coverage just as we always have. Tuesday's Polymer Points Live will still take place with materials reporter Frank Esposito.
You can reach us all via email and while we may not be at our office phone lines, we'll still get your voicemails.
So hang tight, everyone. The news related to COVID-19 is moving fast. We'll continue to keep you in the loop. That includes tracking changes to events. We have an interactive list of changes and cancellations here.
And please reach out if you know of something we're missing or you have information to share. You can reach me at [email protected] and Editor Don Loepp at [email protected]
