Updates & Reminders

  • No current updates.
  • All,

    I’m sure you are seeing a great deal of news regarding the coronavirus so I’d like to take a moment to update you on B&D’s interest in the topic.

    First of all, we are aware of the potential impacts on our employees and business and will continue to monitor developments.  Secondly, the problem is still small in the US, but the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated recently that “Americans should think about getting ready.” Being the good planners that we are, there are some very basic things we can do immediately to preserve our good health, including:

    • Staying home and not coming to work if you do not feel well and not returning to work until you feel better and are symptom-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines. Please keep your supervisor informed of your status.
    • Supervisors sending home any employee who comes to work with visible symptoms.
    • Going home immediately if you become ill at work. Please notify your supervisor of your departure.
    • Following recommended hygiene and sanitation practices, including:  
      • Covering your mouth completely when coughing or sneezing.
      • Avoiding touching your mouth, eyes, and nose.
      • Washing your hands regularly, especially.
      • Using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer regularly.
      • Wiping commonly-used surfaces (e.g., keyboards, phones, desks, etc.) regularly with disinfecting wipes.

    Some people may be concerned about physical contact even in social and business settings (e.g., handshakes) so be prepared to alter customary greeting practices.    

    Employees who become sick while traveling on business should promptly call a healthcare provider for advice if needed. Please notify your supervisor of your status.


    As always, each of us should exercise our own best judgment when deciding how to manage any illness to which we are exposed. 

    Please let Brittney Bennett in the DC office know if you need disinfecting supplies or tissues.  

    For more information on the coronavirus, please refer to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.

    For now, it is business as usual.  We will continue to monitor developments and keep you informed of our plans.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
