The world health community continues to closely monitor the emergence of the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address this health concern to protect our employees. That is our top priority.
First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage everyone to adopt practices to protect their health as well as the health of other employees, customers, partners, and guests.
Accordingly, The Superior Group is taking steps and precautions that are consistent with guidelines established by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), including:
Employees are directed to:
Stay home when you are sick.
Current CDC guidelines are that an employee must be free of fever (100.4 F [37.8 C] or greater using an oral thermometer) and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing or other symptom-altering medicines.
Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues in the trash.
Avoid those who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
Clean frequently touched surfaces.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Avoid shaking hands with others.
To not travel when sick.
Report any health concern or condition observed in the workplace to the Human Resources Department.
Use telephone and video conferencing instead of face-to-face meetings as much as possible during this outbreak. IT support services are available to employees who need assistance with this technology.
While we may not be able to completely prevent this outbreak from impacting our operations, we are highly focused on minimizing any impact to our customers and partners while dedicating our first priority to the safety or our employees and workplaces.
The Superior Group will continue to monitor the outbreak and provide additional information and directives as warranted.
The Superior Group is implementing a non-essential business travel suspension policy. Full details on our travel policy can be found HERE.
Employees are directed to report itineraries of planned or recent personal travel plans to the Human Resources Department prior to travel to evaluate return to work policies. Please use the REPORT TRAVEL FORM to report travel information.
