Memo: Re Strand Products Covid-19 Preparedness and Prevention Dear Valued Partners, Strand Products continues to monitor the Covid-19 public health emergency.  We are assessing the situation daily and taking preemptive measures to follow all recommendations and guidance from federal, state, and local agencies to limit exposure risk.  I’d like to re-assure you that our primary concern is the safety of our employees, families, customers, and our community.  Long term success cannot be taken for granted. All sections of our society –including businesses and employers –must play a role if we are to stop the spread of this disease. The healthcare, defense, and transportation products our employee owners manufacture are classified by the Department of Homeland Security as critical infrastructure industries.  To this end, we have a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule.  Strand Products intends to keep business operations uninterrupted to the extent possible.  We have technology in place to utilize remote access capabilities, alternative work locations for associates, and continuity plans for critical operations.   Strand Products has taken many steps to keep our team safe and informed, including: Enforcement of mandatory sick leave policy for anyone exhibiting symptoms of illness. Ahead of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201), Strand has provided additional paid sick leave for anyone that becomes ill regardless of diagnosis. [...]
