This publication analyzes the situation of businesses in the context of global pandemics. The aim is to discuss the potential impact, the readiness of companies and solutions. Business is important not only for the business units themselves or for the residents of the country, it is the foundation of the entire state economy. Both the public sector and the private sector are closely interlinked. At present, the coronavirus Covid-19, which is spreading all over the world, and the quarantine introduced in many countries are of great importance to business. This pandemic is considered one of the strongest in the last century. Today’s situation allows us to look back and look at previous global pandemics, to analyze what developments in business have taken place in previous years. This paper also presents theoretical considerations and insights with a slight path for possible solutions for different types of businesses.
