Each day, we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and intend to be as proactive as we can as an employer to you and your co-workers and as a service provider to our customers.
As of now, we are conducting business as usual. When and if the situation warrants us to make changes to our practices and procedures, we will re-evaluate, make plans, and communicate to all involved.
As a reminder, we ask you to be diligent with your hygiene practices. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Use the hand sanitizers often and avoid touching your face. The attached flyer provides ways to stop the spread of germs. This flyer will also be posted throughout the facility as a daily reminder.
If you are experiencing undiagnosed flu-like symptoms, contact your supervisor and DO NOT come to work. Please see your doctor or the urgent care facility if you feel you need medical attention. If you are covered by our medical insurance, Cigna has a tele-doctor service available called MDLive. This program allows you to speak to a doctor from your home. I’ve attached a flyer for more information. At this time, it is recommended that you do not return to work until you are fever-free and have not experienced symptoms for at least 3 days. This may change as more is learned about this virus.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
COVID-19 is a virus identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in 2019 and has since spread globally into a pandemic. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. While roughly 80% of cases report mild symptoms, some progress into severe pneumonia and multi-organ failure and can lead to death. Current data indicates the risk of death for those contracting COVID-19 notably increases for individuals above the age of 60 or for individuals with autoimmune conditions. On January 21, 2020, the first set of individuals in the United States tested positive for COVID-19. The virus has since spread across all 50 states and the number of individuals testing positive for COVID-19 continues to rapidly grow each day.
