Caleb adapted his business in many ways to survive through Covid with his staff and clients feeling safe. All systems and processes were handled with social distancing in mind, including renting an additional site that could accommodate training new staff members safely. Caleb also felt it was important to appreciate his first responder community; he started making weekly donations of drinks and snacks that he would hand deliver to local nursing homes, hospitals and other medical facilities.
