Dunstone Company, Inc Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response March 13, 2020
Our public health officials are explaining that there is a very good chance that many people will eventually get the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Many of those who have it may not even realize they have it or have very minor reactions if any. Unfortunately, those without symptoms can still easily spread the disease to others that are more vulnerable, such as those with underlying medical conditions or the elderly. In order to slow the propagation of the disease (assure our medical institutions are not overwhelmed), we are asking all our employees to do their part in practicing good medical hygiene including not coming to work if you show any signs of illness. All non-essential business travel should be delayed until after April 3rd.
As we monitor ongoing developments and safety information related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are following guidelines from public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and our own operational preparedness plan to ensure business continuity while working to protect the well-being of our customers and our colleagues.
For our standard stock items, we currently have more than adequate inventory levels to address our customer needs over the next few months, especially those from overseas. We also have taken the added steps of having additional shipments in route and scheduled to make sure we maintain adequate inventories in the event of any potential supply disruptions.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate the need for additional measures to support our customers, colleagues and communities if those needs arise. For additional information about COVID-19, get the latest report from the CDC at cdc.gov or your local health department.
Regards, Rob Mehal Vice President/General Manager Dunstone Company, Inc.
