Keys to Safer Business Contact Options

Safer Business Contact Options

  

Offered by Jerry Waletzko, Crary Real Estate, 701-746 -4663 jerry@grandforkshomes.net. 


Below is an al a cart master list of voluntary opt-in safer disease control behaviors for a Business Representative and a Customer to willfully consider, comfortably offer to each other, and hopefully come to an accord in a Safer Business Contact during the time of this coronavirus pandemic. 


Either, a Business Representative, or a Customer who is a Party to a possible Safer Business Contact can initiate and share what they are willing to do for a Safer Business Contact: They can use the checklist below by marking the statements they choose to offer and not answering the options they won’t offer. That information is then offered to the other Party for consideration and any differences are hopefully resolved and/or accepted if both parties wish to proceed with the Contact. 


A Business Representative may initially post the offered Safer Business Contact Options on their website.


If a Party to a potential Business Contact does not want to mark up the checklist, they can simply use it as a master guide to restate or modify, in their own words, the safety measures they are willing to take. 

By no means is it a complete list or a guarantee of safety in a business contact. Anyone using these Safer Business Contact Options is operating in good faith to the best of their abilities and no one is held liable if they become sick.
