We have taken every action to comply with the global governmental and private sector push toward “social distancing” to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As of, Tuesday March 17, GE Current, a Daintree company transitioned all office-based workers to a virtual workforce until further notice. We believe this is in the best interest of each employee as well as our families, customers and communities.

 

Our Customer Service Center, located in Richmond, VA, is fully capable of working remotely, as is our employee base located at our corporate offices in East Cleveland, OH.

 

In our factories, we are not taking a “one-size-fits-all” approach regarding COVID-19.  We have instituted an active symptoms monitoring and self-reporting process in our production facilities. Where there is either symptom indication or a positive case of COVID-19, the business implements a mandatory 14-day quarantine plan and conducts a migration/contact review process that seeks to trace potential connections. Employees found to be within reasonably sustained proximity to a symptomatic or COVID-19 positive individual is likewise placed on a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

 

Plants and distribution centers have increased cleaning and sanitation schedules and will be transitioning to smaller work teams with staggered schedules to minimize interactions. Any potential site closure is dependent on multiple considerations, with a mandatory government shutdown being the most likely cause of such a contingency at this point. As of now, the business has detected no facility that poses a reasonable basis for a voluntary shutdown. Of course, COVID-19 is a dynamic and evolving situation, and the business has a team dedicated to actively monitoring conditions and adjusting course appropriately.

 

We are implementing all the CDC-recommended precautions to protect our people, including prominent signage regarding appropriate hygiene practices, disinfecting equipment and other surfaces or items that are touched by people during the work day, monitoring employees for signs of illness associated with COVID-19, and staying abreast of suggestions by medical personnel within and outside the business as to the most appropriate means to prevent the spread of the virus.
