The outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is a significant global health concern. At Mortenson, our highest priority is the health and safety of our team members, customers, project partners and the communities where we live and work. We continue to follow the guidance of health experts in this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation. Mortenson, along with others in our industry, is also providing support to healthcare customers who have implemented emergency operations and have requested help in responding to their challenges.
These are not business-as-usual times for anyone. As developments surrounding COVID-19 progress, we are actively monitoring the situation and managing our company’s response, including the implementation of CDC-recommended measures to protect team members on our projects and throughout our company.
The steps we are taking include physical distancing, reducing worker concentrations and expanding on-site health and safety services on our projects, and working with trade partners to adjust workflows as necessary. We have also suspended work-related air travel, canceled or rescheduled larger meetings and events, and implemented remote working protocols.
Operationally, any supply chain impacts that we may experience will be addressed at the individual project level with appropriate adjustments. It is too early to predict any long-term implications from disruptions that may occur, but we are monitoring this situation closely as changes evolve.
We will continue to follow guidance issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with local, state, and federal health authorities. We will implement further changes or adjustments to our business as needed to help protect the health and safety of those around us.
