Covid-19 Update - November 2, 2020
As we all continue to grapple with the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and everything that this challenging year has brought to our lives, we want to share our continued commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy as we work to further our mission to enhance people's lives beyond our front doors.
We remain committed to our safety practices, and we believe in the science behind these practices. We have been able to remain open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic due to the shared commitment and dedication of all our employees, for whom we are grateful. We continue to follow the safety protocols put in place by our Covid-19 taskforce, and we will adhere to our new policies for as long as necessary.
We are implementing the following policies:
- HEPA filters: We use HEPA filters as an additional protection measure against Covid-19 in workspaces.
- Air purifiers: This month, in addition to HEPA filters, we are installing air purifiers to continuously clean the air in workspaces.
We continue to adhere to the following practices:
We maintain cGMP cleaning and hygiene practices throughout our facility. These include proper gowning procedures, controlled access to production areas, proper ventilation, maintaining cleaning validations/procedures established to protect product integrity, and of course proper handwashing and sanitization. In addition to these procedures, we have implemented several practices to continue to protect the wellbeing of our community. These include additional cleaning/sanitization at the beginning and end of each shift, an additional product wipe-down step with FDA-approved isopropyl alcohol, universal masking, temperature screenings upon arrival, and social distancing. Office employees continue to work from home whenever possible, we have suspended travel through 2020, and we have implemented a no visitors policy.
We expect this program to evolve, and we will continue to provide regular updates to our business partners. We remain committed to addressing the challenges this year brings as we work together to enhance people's lives.
