Text Alerts are a great source for businesses and organizations to get emergency alerts out.
Just do a Google search for "Corona Virus Text Alerts:" or "COVID-19 Text Alerts " and you can see an array of Government Agencies with newly launched alert programs to instantly get information out to the public.
If you are a business, a school, or any organization, you may need to get emergency alerts out all year long. Let's talk about the current situation, specifically.
Alerts about openings, closings, best sanitation practices, work-from-home options, supply inventory, number of local cases, quarantine info, emergency locations and more to be determined.
Recent Example from a Teamsters Union:
"Please be aware that due to precautions related to the Corona Virus, the Belleville St. Patrick's day parade has been cancelled. We will be in touch"
Recent Example from a Restaurant Association:

If you already have a text subscriber platform, you are ahead of the game and can already send out emergency text alerts. Some businesses are even using some gentle humor to help soften the severity and stress of the situation. We do understand you should be responsible about this but a little humor goes a long way.
