VP, human resources
I am somewhat worried because organizations I work with are canceling conferences and events on account of the virus. We are planning to talk through it as a team and plan accordingly. Now that it has a direct impact on my work, I can't ignore it.
I am concerned about it because it impacts my business, especially my colleagues who have traveled to Korea and Ireland. They have actually been quarantined. I worry about my parents, as well, who live in Napa, not far from the airport which is accepting many evacuees who are returning from China and Korea.
I am very concerned because I am trying to avoid any kind of contamination in my restaurant. The uncertainty of whether any customers are infected with the virus is very stressful. We are taking many precautions in order to ensure the safety of our customers so that no one will get sick.
Deb and Mike Williams, with Roxie

We think about and are conscious of the situation, but we will not allow it to affect how we live our lives.
I worry about it a little bit, but not too much. I try to maintain good, safe, hygienic practices like washing my hands often, especially after I've been in direct contact with people. But I believe that like most things, this too shall pass.
