In a world that has been asked to separate to help curb the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), many cigar companies, personalities, and blogs have been doing their part to make everyone feel connected during these trying times. Erik Espinosa and his team have been having daily Facebook LIVE videos, Michael Herklots has been hosting COVideos on Instagram. And Cigar Dojo has set up a 24/7 video virtual lounge for Dojo members to connect and avoid cabin fever (the link to the virtual HERF can be found simply by asking for it on the Dojo app).
Today, Cigars International joined the effort by announcing they will host Facebook LIVE videos starting March 30th at 11AM, with their first guest being Rocky Patel. During the videos, participants will be free to ask Rocky anything they wish regarding cigars or otherwise. The CI LIVE HERF will be about an hour and presumably continue for the foreseeable future in an effort to avoid the cigar community becoming too isolated during the near-country-wide shut down.
