All ESG locations are operating.
About a week and a half ago, we had our first positive COVID-19 cases at Heil in Fort Payne. We tested all team members in close proximity of the positive tests and took advanced precautions with cleaning and self-isolation. Because of the diligence of our team members, operations leadership team, and onsite medical clinic at Heil, we are holding steady with the positive test count of 12 even with more than 100 team members tested. Only the initial two cases had symptoms of COVID-19. No team members at any other ESG site have tested positive so far.
I appreciate the willingness of our team members to continue following our extensive COVID-19 protocols with social distancing, remote working, staying within color-coded areas, and frequent hand washing. It has been a long few months with significant changes in the way we operate each day. I know those working remotely are ready to see their friends and co-workers face-to-face, and our manufacturing teams are looking forward to seeing friends and co-workers outside their specific work area. As difficult as it may be, we must not become complacent. Our number one priority is keeping our team members safe as we continue to work and serve our customers and communities.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
