Coronavirus Update

March 17, 2020

Republic Team –

The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to move rapidly with new expert guidance impacting the people of this country every day. It’s an unprecedented time for all of us.

In the past two weeks, everyone has worked together to fight the spread of COVID-19. Here are just a few examples:

  • Getting cleaning and disinfecting supplies to our employees everywhere
  • Cleaning and sanitizing our facilities multiple times per day
  • Restricting air travel and large group meetings
  • Limiting and adapting training to essential functions
  • Staying flexible on how we handle crew in, crew out, breaks, etc.
  • Conducting tailgate meetings outside where possible
  • Using new collaboration tools and technology to help us work
  • Continuing to communicate to keep everyone informed

I’m incredibly proud of your leadership and dedication to our Company and customers. We are pulling together to address these challenges head-on and we haven’t lost sight of the most important thing – caring for you. Thank you for all your hard work, patience and strength during this uncertain time. We appreciate you.

We remain committed to communicating regularly with you in numerous ways, including a new COVID-19 section on BlueNationOnline.com. We hope you watched Don’s video message last week and look for another video from me this Friday.

Be safe,

Jon
