Employee Safety. Consistent with guidance from the CDC, we’re encouraging all employees to follow appropriate preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including staying home if they are feeling ill or believe they may be at risk. We’re also evaluating our paid leave policy to ensure our staff feel safe and supported if they need to miss work.
We understand the news may make you nervous, we encourage you to visit the CDC’s Website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/cleaning-disinfection.html) for up-to-date information on how to keep your family and yourself safe.
