As communities begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), I want to share with you the steps we’re taking at Brekhus Companies to help protect the health and safety of our customers and associates, which is always our top priority.
We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agencies, we’ve developed plans and established a task force that will allow us to respond timely and appropriately.
Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts have been greatly expanded. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces. We’re asking all of our associates (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.
We feel deeply for those who have been affected. Thankfully, as of now, we’re not aware of any associate contracting COVID-19. But we have implemented guidelines that instruct any associate who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions.
At this time, we are conducting business as usual to meet the needs of our customers. If we become aware of any condition that would make it unsafe, please rest assured that we’ll swiftly respond and address as necessary.
Again, the health and safety of our customers and associates are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.
