To be honest no! We have had a massive response from people submitting their CVs - literally in the hundreds! It showed that we had hit a nerve. We thought it was just us and a few people who had really had enough but it turns out loads of people across the globe are ready for a change. Our clients have reacted very positively and are willing to work with us. We thought not having a brand would be tricky but actually clients said they don’t care too much about that - what they want is consistent quality - and with all the press we now do have a brand! We do have some restrictions in the UK but nothing too serious. So all good so far.

I have a N95 respirator. Can I use it once, let it dry for a few days, and then reuse again, since they said the virus will typically not survive for more than a few days on inanimate surfaces?
