To: All employees of The Resource & our community at large

From: Kenneth Dalton, President  

**3/26/20: Things are changing daily in the current COVID-19 climate, with 'stay-in-place' orders issued for many of the communities we serve. We want you to know that WE ARE STILL OPEN & operational, in order to serve and support many essential businesses! We've adjusted processes to allow for social distancing, and most interactions will be virtual. You do not need to come in to our office in order to find a job; Applications are accepted 24/7 and you can view our full job board on our website. Our Recruiters are available via phone or text during regular business hours. Call the office nearest you for more information!**

**Effective 3/18/20 The Resource will no longer accept walk-in visitors to our office locations. All screening and interviewing will be conducted virtually.**

The world health community continues to monitor closely the emergence of the disease named “coronavirus disease 2019” (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address concerns. First and foremost, the health and safety of our employees is our utmost concern, along with the health of our customers, visitors, etc. Our primary concern will always be to take proactive measures in order to maintain a safe environment for our extended TR family.

Here are some steps that you can take to keep yourself healthy: 

  • Stay home if you are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue. Currently, the CDC recommends that employees stay at home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100°F or 37.8°C) or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. 

***If you are staying home due to illness, please be sure to let both your contact/Recruiter at The Resource and your work supervisor know*** 

  • Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds 
  • Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze or cough, and discard used tissues in the trash
  •  Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms 
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces 
  • Avoid touching your face: nose, eyes, mouth - when hands are not recently washed 

As an employee of The Resource, we ask you to please follow the instructions that are communicated at your assigned work site. If you aren’t sure of the protocol, please ask the person who oversees your work area or call your Account Manager/Contact with The Resource. 

  We are continuing to monitor the development of this issue and are taking proactive measures to implement appropriate responses. We will communicate information as it changes. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
