A message from EIA about COVID-19
At EIA, the health and safety of our clients and technicians is our top priority. Our thoughts are with all who have been impacted by the coronavirus. The services we provide are essential to the community. EIA is closely following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, and we are regularly reviewing our response plan for both our employees and our clients. We are closely monitoring the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization.
While we recognize that this is largely a humanitarian challenge, we want to ensure that you are aware of our efforts to continue to provide uninterrupted service to our trusted clients. We will also provide ongoing communications and updates to you as necessary. All technicians are symptom-free, required to wear masks, regularly sanitize and wash their hands. Our essential workers and other critical employees are working in smaller teams, practicing physical distancing, wearing facial covering, monitoring themselves for symptoms and taking other prevention measures recommended by the CDC. EIA employees who can work from home continue to do so to help minimize contact for all employees. We will continue to do business as usual while taking precautionary measures to keep our clients and employees as safe as possible.
EIA, have established procedures for employees, which incorporate self-quarantine protocols including working from home for 14 days following travel to one of the CDC’s Level 2 or 3 countries. Should an employee reside with someone who is self-quarantined, or if they have been in direct contact with, and exposed to, an individual recently traveling from one of the CDC’s Level 2 or 3 countries, they must also self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days. Whether or not an employee has been traveling inside or outside of the U.S., employees who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are to stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever (100° F/37.8° C or greater using an oral thermometer), show no signs of a fever and have had no other symptoms for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants). Additionally, if any employee experiences flu-like symptoms, they must consult a doctor. Employees with flu-like symptoms will be asked to work from home for 14 days and must be symptom free before returning to work. Any visitors to our offices are being asked to comply with these guidelines as well.
EIA is well prepared for the potential impact of the Coronavirus outbreak. If you have specific questions or concerns, please contact us the Human Resource Department at HR@eia.us
