Several store employees were furloughed, meaning their jobs will be waiting for them once we reopen. They will also be compensated with their full, normal salaries through unemployment for 39 weeks. If an employee is not eligible for unemployment, we will pay them their normal salary. None of these were easy decisions.

It does not matter how far-fetched the idea may seem. Please share.
