- Stay in contact with your players, keep them informed! Post updates on your website, or your social media platforms, and even record a voice message to play on your telephone answering service. Post a sign on the door saying "Closed Temporarily," and provide a phone number to call for more information. However you choose to communication, explain your closure, and that you are awaiting directions from local and federal government as to when it will be safe to resume your bingo. In the interim, are you upping the cleaning and sanitation routine in your bingo hall, or planning a deep clean so the hall will be ready when the time comes to reopen? Make sure your players aren't left scratching their heads wondering about their favorite bingo hall!
- Plan events and brainstorm ways to better your bingo hall. Use online resources like Skype or Slack to communicate with your team remotely, and set brainstorming sessions with the intent to plan new event ideas, find new ways to connect to your players (either virtually or once your hall reopens), or suggest ways to update your hall environment or operations.
