I hope that you and the team remain healthy and safe in the current climate. I wanted to update you on the status of CCAH staff during these uncertain times.
Like you, we will diligently monitor the progress of COVID- 19. We are relieved to report that to date, none of our CCAH employees have developed symptoms. Prior to any government recommendations we took precautions as company to protect our staff and clients. At the beginning of the week, any employees who may have been in contact with or exposed to someone with the virus in the past two weeks have self-quarantined. Any team members who have traveled internationally in the previous two weeks will self-quarantine for two weeks upon their return.
The safety of our employees, their families and our clients is our top concern. Therefore, we are implementing the following guidelines and proactive measures, effective immediately. These guidelines represent our best judgment, at this moment, regarding practical steps we can all take to reduce risk for ourselves and for each other.
Business Travel & Conferences: Out of an abundance of caution, we have asked our employees to refrain from business travel at least through the end of the March. We will instead use video conference technology or look at options to reschedule any critical face-to-face meetings in the coming weeks.
After a successful test run of a mandatory remote work day on Thursday March 12, and carefully monitoring our network and servers during such times, we believe it only prudent to continue this practice. Therefore, CCAH is implementing a mandatory remote working policy for all staff effective Friday March 13 through Friday, March 20.
We will continue to monitor the situation daily, and we look forward to getting back to the office in the near future. In the meantime, we will make any short-term adjustments as needed, but continue to operate business as usual on your behalf. Several of our clients have also published great resources and we encourage you to visit them, and the CDC’s site.
