Do you have a housekeeper or cleaning service?

Because COVID-19 is viable for days on surfaces, they’re at extra risk of catching the virus if they’re coming and going from peoples’ homes. Even if your home has zero risk, it significantly increases their stress level to visit each home.

Action you can take

One small but very wonderful action you can take is to ask them to skip their visits for the forseeable future.

And if you’re able, continue to pay them. They will have significant disruptions in their own revenues. They’ll be grateful.

If you do that, we sure do appreciate it. #bigthanks to you.


I've lived in Seattle since 1991, and held jobs at Microsoft, Expedia and my own few startups. I've taught a class on innovation at the UW Foster School of Business. I love Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. I've got a wife, three kids and a dog, who, other than me, is by far the most difficult member of the household.
