ESG COVID-19 Daily Updates

All ESG locations are operating today.

Chattanooga ESG office update

  • The Chattanooga ESG office is open for remote ESG team members without power, WiFi, and/or cell service due to Sunday night’s tornado – as of 04/14/20, more than 28,000 people in Chattanooga were still without power.
  • Those team members who already have offices in Chattanooga can use their normal office.
  • Those team members without offices in Chattanooga are encouraged to contact their direct supervisor and site HRBP, so we can determine the best set-up location while maintaining proper social distancing (six feet).
  • Normal COVID-19 protocols should be in place including frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds and social distancing.

Telehealth treatment update

  • All Dover medical plans will now cover the cost of telehealth before plan deductibles have been met for any illness through June 30, 2020.  This means telehealth visits will be free of charge.
  • ESG had been reimbursing for the co-pay for telehealth visits.  Now, the up-front payment will not be required for Dover medical plans.
