As the national Covid-19 pandemic continues, we hope this update finds you and your loved ones safe and well. Although the virus continues to spread, the national outlook has improved slightly, with the rate of infection appearing to slow and the overall curve flattening. Experts are pointing to mid to late May to begin easing the “Safer at Home” guidance and reopening the economy. We at Coast Packing are continuing to do our part, implementing a number of programs and modifying various schedules to support our employees and our customers. Because of these steps, we continue to operate.
As part of the critical infrastructure, Coast continues our commitment of feeding this great country and protecting our employees. We have implemented a mandatory entry policy that requires a brief health screening, including a temperature check for any employees, visitors, contractors, and drivers for pickups or deliveries. We ask that every visitor wear a mask of some kind and be prepared for this; please contact us immediately if there are any concerns. We also are hoping for greater customer collaboration as we forecast for the next several weeks and months.
Again, thank you for your commitment and support in this extraordinary time of need. Together, we will emerge stronger and more resilient than ever.
Eric R. Gustafson
CEO | Coast Packing Company
