The Coronavirus is changing the way we do business and daily developments affect us all. Here’s what we know, what we’re doing and how we expect it to impact the business of business.
I. The State of Connecticut’s “Stay Safe Stay Home Policy”
The States of Connecticut and New York, in line with Federal rulings issued March 20 and March 23, have deemed landscape services “essential and life sustaining” and eligible to continue operations during emergency or quarantine scenarios.
This means two things. Our team can ensure that your property’s landscape health won’t suffer during the interim, and with ELM’s strict personal and public health protocols in place, there is reduced risk of exposure.
II. Eastern Land Management’s “Protection of Public Health” Policy
ELM will continue to protect public health in performance of essential treatments to lawns, landscapes and green spaces to 1) reduce the transmission of deadly diseases through pests like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas; 2) keep public and private pathways free from obstruction and potential hazards; 3) maintain green spaces to reduce crime; 4) proactively manage late season snow and ice; and 5) address storm damage, weather events, and flooding.
Because we are all in this together, we stand with you and your business to stop the rapid transmission of COVID-19, while performing essential functions necessary for the health, safety and well-being of our communities and families, and the great places we live, work and play.
Our administrative offices are closed but essential field operations are open with restrictions in place. Our Area Managers will be your direct point of contact to make sure you are getting the support you need and stay connected in a way that suits your circumstances best.
We continue to closely monitor the impact of COVID-19 across our region and we will update you in the moment.
These are truly unprecedented times. Be well. Stay safe. And don’t hesitate to reach out.
Bruce T. Moore, Jr., President, Eastern Land Management
