It’s no secret that the coronavirus (or COVID-19, as it’s technically known) has had an impact on all of our lives. While we won’t pretend to be epidemiologists, we do understand the severity of the situation with many counties across the country issuing stay-at-home orders. COVID-19 has affected nearly every industry and commercial real estate is one of them.
