"Two things keep rising to the top as I deal with clients going back into business...

1) EVERY business needs backup of data - offsite as well as onsite.

2) EVERY business should have a minimum of an "information" page on the Internet for their business. This trains customers to check on the business; they can see if the business has changed their hours, moved locations, etc. It allows businesses to keep in touch with customers if other forms of communication are not available.
