Prepare Your Business for COVID-19 Restrictions

The new restrictions that are coming into place in Ireland can cause a lot of uncertainty and confusion for businesses as they have to temporarily close operations as per the government guidelines. This means that they must consider keeping proper provisions in place till the time their business remains closed to avoid any damage that can happen in their absence.

What Are The Top Challenges For Closing Businesses?

  1. Pest Infestation - These new restrictions are being imposed as the winter approaches, this is a serious cause of concern for business owners as they have the threat of a possible rodent and flies infestation in their hands. Rodents such as rats and mice will be out looking for food and shelter to spend the winter months and there is a high possibility they will try to infest closed and undisturbed businesses. Flies will also be on the rise as the temperature goes down which and an empty building is a perfect opportunity for them.
  2. Supply Chain Disruption - Businesses that have a robust supply-chain operation will be impacted heavily as they would have to suddenly stop all operations and close their business temporarily. This will be causing serious supply chain issues and disrupt the entire business operations.
  3. Inventory Damage - Closing businesses will have to store a lot of inventory so that it can be used when they reopen. This increases the risk of inventory damage as the chances of rodent infestation will be high and these creatures are known to cause serious inventory damage if not checked properly.
  4. High Maintenance Costs - The cost of temporary closure is very high and unpredictable as businesses will have to bear the cost of rents, salaries, electricity etc and there is no guarantee when this will be over.
