The novel coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives in so many ways, and it will be many months before things even begin to get back to normal. In hot zones in particular, most stores and other nonessential businesses will have to remain closed potentially through the end of the summer. The painful truth is that many of them will never reopen. In fact, even restaurants that have been allowed to remain open for takeout and delivery orders may end up closing down permanently because business for many of them has been so slow. We should all do our best to support local businesses whenever we’re able to, of course.

As for personal impact, many of us are working from home or taking online classes from home for the first time. If that’s the case, it’s important to remember that when it comes to the COVID-19 outbreak, not everyone is in this together. Most people band together and look for ways to help each other, even if that just means having a video chat once in a while with someone who might be lonely. But some people are trying to use the pandemic as an opportunity to take advantage of others. That’s especially true of nefarious hackers, which means you need to protect yourself.

Amazon is running a terrific deal for one day only on Friday that slashes the price of Webroot Internet Security Plus with Antivirus Protection Software to just $49.99. That’s a 2-year subscription, mind you, and it covers you for up to three devices. That means you can protect every computer in your home for the next two years, and it’ll only cost you $50! It’s a fantastic deal, but it’s only available until the end of the day.
