We didn’t know if we had been heading to be shut for a month, a 12 months, two years. We experienced a good deal of individuals not truly understanding what they ended up heading to do — incredibly loyal personnel — that we worried about. So why not continue to keep them used and retain some revenue happing and it just manufactured a great deal of feeling.”
