We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following the current guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure we are doing our part to help prevent the spread of the virus and protect our customers, employees and the communities in which we live and operate.

First and foremost, we are practicing social distancing which is one of the most effective ways to halt the transmission of the virus.

What we’re doing:

  • We have restricted all business travel, both domestic and international.
  • We require employees who travel for personal reasons to avoid contact with other employees, customers or vendors for a period of 14 days.
  • Meetings are being conducted via conference calls or video conferences.
  • Where able, employees are required to work remotely from their homes and the field for the next two weeks, at which time we will reassess the situation.
  • For employees that need to work within our offices, we are working in shifts to minimize contact.
  • We have increased the frequency and scope of the cleaning services in our offices.
  • We are putting measures in place to minimize potential impacts to our operations during this time:
    • Field employees will continue to work to ensure products make it to market.
    • Accounts payable, Contracts and other Accounting or Legal functions will continue to operate in shifts.
    • Our team is committed to do their best to keep contracts and payments timely as they work safely.
What you may experience:

We may be less interactive than normal due to the social distancing policies that we've put in place. Also, receipt of mailed correspondence may be delayed because most of us are working remotely. Please continue to call or email us as you normally would.

As you may expect, this is a fluid and evolving situation. We continue to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak daily and will keep you informed of future updates as the situation develops.

Thanks,
