To: Mashburn Employees, Clients, and Subcontractors
From: Paul Mashburn, Chief Executive Officer
Columbia, S.C.— As the impact of the Coronavirus continues around the world, Mashburn wants to keep everyone abreast of the proactive measures we are taking to protect our people, our projects and our teams.
Jobsites and Offices
As of today, at 10:00 am, all Mashburn offices and jobsites will remain open. We ask that everyone be prudent with washing your hands and using hand sanitizers as much as possible. Please be diligently aware of what you touch and avoid touching your face. If you experience cold or flu like symptoms, please stay home and call your doctor. Mashburn employees are encouraged to use the Teladoc service via their website or by calling the toll-free number. Try to keep your distance from other people and if you do cough or sneeze, please cover your mouth with your sleeve or with a tissue.
Meetings and Gatherings
Non-essential business meetings, employee participation in company meetings, and/or required travel are postponed until further notice. We will utilize remote conferencing technology and tools to keep our people and projects connected.
Projects and Supply Chain
We are currently working on an assessment of how this situation may affect each project and the information we must get to our employees, owners, subcontractors, suppliers and design teams to help minimize impacts and delays.
Updates and information
Mashburn’s Executive Committee is working with our QC/QA and Safety Director, Daniel Skinner on current updates from local schools, hospitals, government officials and city/county inspections to remain knowledgeable. We will inform all employees and stakeholders of any pertinent information and protocols that we put in place in response to this virus. Please continue to monitor local and national news for new updates as well.
Daniel Skinner will continue to provide daily updates to Mashburn personnel. Our divisional Vice Presidents and Project Managers will keep our project teams up to date. This will likely get worse before it gets better but through strong communication and common sense, we will persevere and get through this expeditiously and safely.
