To all ESCO Group Business Partners,
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our employees and valued business partners. As the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation continues to develop, we are taking appropriate steps to continue our business operations within the guidelines set forth by the CDC, WHO, and all applicable Federal and State orders. As we navigate this challenging environment, our team is doing everything possible to ensure that we are supporting our critical infrastructure partners and maintaining basic minimum operations at our facility. We ask for your understanding and cooperation as we take the following steps to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus:
• All air travel is suspended indefinitely
• All in person meetings should be postponed until further notice (including service and installation work)
o Special circumstances may be considered for local critical infrastructure clients, but must be authorized by the ESCO Group leadership team after careful review of the request
• All ESCO Group personnel able to work remotely will be required to do so indefinitely
• All customer or vendor visits to ESCO’s facility that are not authorized in support of critical infrastructure clients will be postponed indefinitely
o Currently prescribed social distancing practices should be observed and any person feeling sick or experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 is prohibited from entering ESCO’s facility
• Shipping and receiving operations will continue within the current guidelines of the Michigan State Executive Order No. 2020-21
o ALL Business Partners are asked to enter our facility only if necessary and with authorization from an ESCO Employee. Please observe all postings in the shipping and receiving area to ensure the health and security of our team and yours.
Employees are required to stay home if they are feeling sick. Additionally, they are being asked to disclose and self-quarantine for 14 days if they have:
• Been in direct contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19
• Traveled to a high-risk area as determined by the CDC/WHO in the last 14 days
• Symptoms indicative of the Coronavirus and seek testing for COVID-19
We have implemented steps to clean/disinfect high traffic areas in our facility multiple times during the workday. We also encourage all team members to practice the following:
• Practice social distancing (6’ recommended) and refrain from handshakes and other personal contact
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (65% to 90% alcohol is recommended)
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue.
o When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your sleeve, elbow, or arm.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects
We will continue to do our best to minimize delays and disruptions to our business operations during this challenging time. The ESCO leadership team will continue to monitor the developing situation and communicate any further changes to our approach.
Please reach out to a member of our team if you have further questions or need clarification regarding our approach.
