Date: 6/2/20


To: Vendors / Visitors

From: Tim Harbaugh

In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and the fact that the seasonal

influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address a

number of business concerns. First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace

and encourage and/or adopt practices protecting the health of employees, customers,

visitors or others. We also want to ensure the continuity of business operations during

this pandemic.

We ask all Vendors / Visitors to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of

communicable diseases in the workplace. Employees are reminded of the following:

■ Stay home when you are sick.

■ Practice social distancing 6ft of separation.

■ Face coverings must be worn at all times.

■ Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.

■ Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues

in the trash.

■ Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.

■ Clean frequently touched surfaces.

■ Clean reusable PPE Daily ( cloth face coverings, hard hats, glasses)

■ Meal and rest periods should be staggered to provide adequate social distancing.

■ Employees are prohibited from eating or drinking anywhere inside the workplace

other than designated break rooms or outdoor eating areas to assure that masks

are worn consistently and correctly.

■ Any shared tools must be disinfected before being returned to storage.

■ Use the transfer aiding station for contactless transfer of tools and equipment

(gray rolling cart) Or other designated area.

■ Incoming deliveries must be disinfected prior to sorting

Production Networking Inc. will provide alcohol-based hand sanitizers throughout the

workplace and in common areas. Cleaning sprays and wipes will also be provided to

clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as telephones and



It is critical that Vendors/Visitors do not report to work while they 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 Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention recommends that employees remain at home until they are free

of fever for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications, the employee's

symptoms have improved and at least ten (10) days have passed since the symptoms

first appeared. Additionally if you have been in contact with someone exhibiting these

symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19, Employees, Vendors and Visitors will

be directed to follow the guidelines for self isolation as directed by the CDC and local


If an employee tests positive for Covid-19 anyone that has had contact in the recent

past will be given time and encouraged to be tested. At this time a cleaning of the office

and all gear affected will occur.

With the above symptoms in mind a required Go / No go check in will be required with

Tim each day before entry to the office.

If any safety issues are observed with the company provided PPE in relation to work

process share these concerns with management.
