When you have a side business like Uber or Airbnb, you need to take into account the events of the global pandemic. Yes, a lot of people have lost their jobs and millions of lives are affected all over the world. The truth is you will still need to continue to work because that is just the way life is. You can’t just forget about your side businesses. Social distancing is a must for Uber and Airbnb. For Uber, better to put a plastic wrap that would separate the driver and passenger so that you can be sure you won’t contact the virus. We all know the consequences if that happens even if it is a professional who specializes in dog sitting. You can’t really risk getting the virus as you may be putting the lives of your loved ones at risk. While it is true that there is a huge chance of surviving, the same can’t be said for the other people living in your house if they are old. For Airbnb, it better have a professional cleaning company disinfect the entire place after each guest has left. You never really know what is going to happen after that so it would be better to be safe than sorry. Also, have the guests sign a health declaration form so if anything happens then it is out of your hands. Of course, that is not saying something will happen but you never know since a lot of people are asymptomatic.
When you are driving an Uber, you would still want to communicate with the person sitting at the back. In addition, better decrease the number of drives you do in one day as that could result in a lot of people wanting to ride. We all know public transportation is limited so a lot of people are booking Ubers nowadays. It is not really safe for either one but they really have no choice because they would have no other way to get to their job like a dog sitting one. We all know a lot of people lost their jobs and a lot more layoffs could happen in the next few months. As a result, you got a lot of people complaining about how everyone is just letting this virus get over their heads since there is a huge survival rate anyway. The fact is health experts would caution that this virus is something that should not be underestimated even if there are a lot more deaths associated with cancer. The problem is if you know someone who died from something other than COVID-19 then you may not be able to see that person as social distancing will be implemented. The pandemic may call for new businesses where you may put your creativity at work. This is a great time to let everyone know how you feel when you put reviews up about all the people that rode in your car. Keep in mind that they can also do that for you.
