To Our Valued Customers, Clients, and Partners,
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario government has declared a state of emergency and set out some recommendations for the general public. At Great North Homes, we will be following the advice of our public health experts by taking actions to protect the health and safety of our staff, clients, partners, and the general public.
As a manufacturing and distribution company with little exposure to public areas, we are considered to be low risk, and as such we will be continuing to operate our team at the Great North site on a day to day basis. As a precautionary measure we are asking our clients to limit their visits to our place of business.
In the office, both design staff and myself will be available by telephone and email. We are also now equipped for internet video conference capabilities. We have encouraged our staff to follow the guidelines set out by the World Health Organization (wash hands regularly, stay home if you are ill or have been travelling, limit social gatherings, and cover coughs and sneezes). We are limiting our availability at the office for meetings to be by appointment only, and we are using a screening process to ensure that our staff remain safe.
We will be re-evaluating regularly and will let you know with as much notice as possible should any of these plans and guidelines change.
Thank you for your continued commitment to our business and to the safety of those around us.
– Greg Lubbelinkhof, VP
