Workplace Emergency Standards COVID - 19


We oppose making COVID -19 workplace emergency standards permanent.

We are an employee owned Virginia business who has proactively invested in training, and equipment and initiated safety protocols consistent with state and  national requirements in order to protect our team members and our workplace against COVID - 19.  We do not believe in permanently imposing constrictive emergency standards.  We have and will continue to adapt to workplace safety protocols including masks, social distancing and specific sanitization and disinfecting practices to keep our teams safe and working.

We considered out staff and workplace "Essential" long before it was confirmed by the Commonwealth of Virginia.  It is not necessary to permanently impose one size fits all measures for what should be (we pray) a temporary necessity.
