While adhering to the CDC and other federal guidelines regarding COVID-19, our industry has been fortunate enough to remain open at our plants and continue to do work at our job sites. Areas of the country are beginning to see a decline in the outbreak of the virus and states are beginning to reopen in strategic phases.
Barrett Industries and its subsidiaries continue to implement wide-reaching safety measures to protect our employees, their families, and the communities in which we work. Staff working at our open plants and job sites continue to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), adhere to strict safety protocols, and practice social distancing whenever possible.
As our country begins to reopen in phases, the complexity of COVID-19 has identified new challenges in welcoming staff back to the office setting. Throughout Barrett Industries we have begun to evaluate how we can safely and effectively do so.
Through thoughtful collaboration, each of our subsidiaries has developed Return to Work Policies & Procedures. In compliance with state and local public health mandates, these guidelines detail new safety measures that must be adhered to by staff working within our offices. These measures include, but are not limited to, health screenings prior to entering the building and wearing a face covering. Additionally, we have temporarily implemented restrictions regarding visitors and altered the process for package deliveries.
We are proud to share that during these trying times, Barrett Industries and its subsidiaries have continued to give back to the communities in which we work. Many of our companies have donated personal protective equipment and other supplies to local healthcare organizations, first responders, and food pantries to ensure that our neighbors remain safe and are able to meet their basic needs.
The greatest asset we have at Barrett Industries is our people. We will continue to work together to ensure the safety of all of our employees. We thank you all for your flexibility, teamwork, and dedication to safety.
