One month ago, our lives were completely different. Our children were in school, our country and its citizens were working and lives were moving pretty smoothly. We hugged our friends and loved ones, visited local businesses, restaurants and breweries and sent our kids off to school.

The COVID19 virus has impacted not just our community, small businesses, schools and employers, but it has had a widespread impact on the entire world, leaving many of us in uncertainty during these trying times.

I have been in the insurance industry for over 17 years and have never seen anything like this. Every day, I help clients manage risk and am committed to be there for them if they have a car accident, flooded basement or the loss of a loved one. The Rippy Agency is still open for business so that we can assist our clients with their every day risks. As an insurance agency owner, I help protect people from life’s uncertainties so they can realize their hopes and dreams, but the fact of the matter is, the impact this will have on our economy is more grand than we can forecast. I have seen local businesses shut their doors because they were mandated to do so by law. I have friends who were laid off or lost their jobs all together. Some of my fellow small business owners are not going to come out on the other side of this ok and are closing their doors all together.

It’s times like these that we need to come together as a community. Help support our local businesses not only stay alive, but THRIVE! #WeAreBrighton!
