Walk into Hampden’s Good Neighbor café and shop and it feels like everything was meant to be photographed for Instagram — from the Japanese ceramics to the hand-painted mirrored entrance sign and obligatory selfie spot, to the stools and chairs by Danish brand Hem. Topped with edible flowers and other colorful ingredients, even the toasts on the food menu were made to sparkle on camera.

Pay It Forward – How Very Well Acupuncture is Coping during Coronavirus

Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Dr. David Buscher, D.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac.,
Doctor of Acupuncture at Very Well Acupuncture, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
In the face of the unknown risks, we decided to close the clinic completely on March 18th. During that time, we changed our clinic management software to a service that allows us to conduct telemedicine appointments. “Telemedicine acupuncture” may sound strange, but it’s actually really lovely and empowering. On a secure video call, we talk about the client’s pain or concerns and then guide them through a series of acupressure, self-massage, and breathing exercises.

Now, having received best practices for disinfection from our national organizations, we have reopened the clinic for limited office visits, as well.

The following is an update from Ali von Paris, the Founder of Route One Apparel, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
Like everyone else in our state, we had to react quickly to this situation, and we have done a complete 180 in a few short weeks. We have allowed the majority of our non-fulfillment staff to work remotely, and our fulfillment representatives are wearing masks and gloves and practicing social distancing to stay safe while filling orders.

In addition, we have worked very hard and fast to design and sell new products, including essential items like face masks, neck gaiters, surgical caps and bandanas, as well as new t-shirt designs to try to help keep spirits up in this stressful time.
