Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been constantly monitoring the situation and updating our response accordingly. Our first priority is always the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and our greater community. In order to protect our employees, all staff who can work remotely have been doing so since mid March. We have instituted new workplace sectioning to enable safe social distancing for our production staff, and to minimize contact between departments and with outside personnel, such as the truck drivers who pick up and deliver orders for our customers. Our quality assurance and sanitation staff have doubled down on already rigorous sanitizing procedures. We are doing everything in our power to help flatten the curve.
Most importantly, we are still open and operating. As a food producer, Catania Oils is considered an essential business. We take that privilege and responsibility seriously. Our customers are dealing with the effects of a situation that is unprecedented in living memory, and we are working hard to meet their changing needs. We are proud of our role in helping keep America fed, especially in these uniquely difficult times.
