Dear Valued Customers and Partners,
With the impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak being felt by businesses around the world, I thought it was important to let you know the steps Desert Mountain is taking to prepare for the potential implications of this significant challenge. This is a fluid situation that is changing daily. We are monitoring updates on the national, state, and local levels and implementing any government-mandated actions and steps.
Within each of our locations, where possible, we have provided employees with the ability to work remotely which allows us to continue serving our customers and business partners while protecting our employees and mitigating the risk of spreading the virus.
I am meeting daily with my leadership team to review the situation and put specific measures into place as required. Our current position is as follows:
- Wherever possible, we are requesting conference calls and/or online meetings rather than face-to-face interactions. We are also avoiding any physical contact, such as handshakes, in any meetings that continue on a face-to-face basis.
- We are following all government guidelines with respect to international travel. All non-essential travel outside of the United States has ceased.
- Travel inside the US is being minimized, especially air travel.
- We are suspending conferences and large internal meetings taking place in March and April that require travel.
As a company, our products and services fall under what is considered “essential” as we support agriculture, construction, public safety, and air quality initiatives. We would like to remind our customers and business partners that we are open for all business activities while adhering to these guidelines.
Our product storage yards are open and currently shipping products. Although we believe the initiatives we have put in place are appropriate for the current levels of risk, they are under constant review. We do not currently foresee any impact on the continuity of our service. We will issue updates as the situation with COVID-19 evolves.
Desert Mountain prides itself on our ability to help our customers be successful. During this stressful and unprecedented time, we continue to make ourselves available to you through emails, phone calls, video conferences, etc.
As always, I thank you for your support and continued partnership. We can be reached at Info@desertmtncorp.com or 800-375-9264.
