Like you, all of us at John R. Young & Company and our assorted divisions have seen our lives affected by COVID-19 and the Coronavirus. We wanted to take a moment to address our customers and vendors about what JRY is doing to help combat Coronavirus and keep you all and our employees safe during this difficult and frustrating time.
Doubtless, you have received and read several similar statements from other organizations that you've done business with. We, too, are following the guidelines put forth by the WHO and CDC to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We are reminding our employees about the importance of frequent and thorough hand washing, and increased disinfection and cleaning of our facilities and equipment. Our delivery drivers have been instructed to wear disposable gloves when handling product and making a delivery. We have implemented a policy encouraging all customers to pay via phone when possible. When and where possible, we are asking capable employees to work from home.
There has been some confusion about how safe, or not, it may be to handle packaging or receive a delivery. The WHO and CDC maintain that you are unlikely to contract the COVID-19 virus by handling a shipping container or cardboard. So long as it is prudent for us to do so, we will continue to make deliveries, both of packaged lubricant products and fuel oil and bulk oil products.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Young's. We'll be happy to answer any questions you might have or go into further detail about the measures we're undertaking to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
