We recently confirmed that an employee in our Westfield, Massachusetts, facility was diagnosed with coronavirus. Our thoughts are with the employee and their loved ones.

Because of this diagnosis, we have temporarily closed several areas where the affected employee spent time. We also told the employees in those areas to remain home to self-quarantine and self-monitor. We will work to mitigate any spread of the virus by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the areas before they reopen later this month.

Since news of the coronavirus emerged, we have proactively implemented disease-mitigation measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). We have restricted company travel, moved as many employees as possible to remote work, implemented social distancing measures, established on-site temperature screenings, provided on-site employees with personal protective equipment, limited the number of visitors and people entering our facilities, increased the frequency and intensity of facility cleanings and encouraged employees to stay home if they feel unwell.

Many of our facilities remain operational in accordance with identification of aviation as critical infrastructure by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber & Industrial Security Agency (CISA). 

Per CISA, the business sectors defined as critical infrastructure are “… so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.” Guidance from the U.S. president notes that critical infrastructure industries have a “special responsibility” to maintain a normal work schedule during the global COVID-19 outbreak.

We continue to closely monitor this situation and will implement additional measures as necessary to protect our employees, customers, suppliers and communities.
