Re: Important COVID-19 Status Announcement Affecting Safe Fleet Manufacturing Facilities
Dear Valued Safe Fleet Partner:
In connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many U.S., state and local government authorities have been issuing orders requiring businesses other than those qualifying as “essential” or “critical” to shut down operations or substantially reduce onsite staffing. I am writing to confirm to you that, as further detailed below, the businesses of Safe Fleet satisfy the qualifying exemption criteria.
Pursuant to the “Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce During COVID-19 Response” issued on March 19, 2020 by the United States Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”), Safe Fleet’s operations comprise “essential” businesses serving the transportation and logistics, construction, first responder, public works and other “critical infrastructure” segments.
In keeping with that public responsibility, Safe Fleet is continuing to operate our manufacturing facilities, subject to our team’s active and ongoing monitoring and contingency planning around any further relevant COVID-19 developments in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local health guidelines.
We continue to invoke new countermeasures against COVID-19 including splitting manufacturing shifts and increasing work from home options to increase the social distancing within our facilities. We remain ready and available to respond to your needs by phone, webinar, or email. We continue to take, manage and fulfill orders every day.
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support; we at Safe Fleet remain dedicated to perform our essential role in the critical infrastructure supply chain during this time of global crisis. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any follow-up questions concerning the above.
President, Safe Fleet
