As an essential services provider supporting relief agencies, moving people, services and goods during this global health crisis, we remain open to help serve critical transportation infrastructure support, but have temporarily consolidated some of our operations for the safety of our customers and employees.
We are carefully monitoring the situation around the clock and following guidance from the World Health Organization and other health authorities. We will follow the guidance of the local health authorities, keeping our employees and customers top of mind with each and every decision.
Today – and every day – the safety and wellbeing of employees and customers is one of our top priorities. We continue to take proactive steps to ensure we are doing our part to support and protect our employees and our broader community, while recognizing our important role as an essential service provider.
For those working in our locations, we remain absolutely committed to providing them with a consistent and safe work environment during these unpredictable and challenging times. We are encouraging employees to follow health authority best practices like frequent hand washing and staying home if they are feeling ill.
We’ve also taken additional steps to ensure groups are practicing increased social distancing efforts while working, including limiting the number of employees at a location or within vehicles, avoiding large gatherings of employees, and encouraging employees to maintain distance from others whenever possible.
We’ve always taken seriously the cleanliness of our locations and vehicles, and we know this is more important now than ever. We are implementing additional measures to clean and disinfect our locations and vehicles, in alignment with guidance from health authorities. This includes routine cleaning with a recommended disinfectant of all frequently touched surfaces at our locations, such as countertops, door handles, kiosks, workstations and bathrooms. We also have a very formal training process in place that instructs all employees about the proper cleaning of vehicles. Of particular focus, our procedures mandate a thorough cleaning and wiping of the interior with a recommended disinfectant. This includes the dashboard, instrument panel, steering column, wheel, accessory panel, center console, cup holders, compartments, seats, between console and seats, between doorjambs and seats, door and door pockets, among other areas. We are frequently reinforcing the importance of this process with our employees.
