MESSAGE FROM JACK A. OLMSTEAD, PRESIDENT:
There has been a great deal of discussion in the media about COVID-19. We are reviewing recommendations by authorities for appropriate measures and actions we need to take per the CDC, WHO, OSHA, state officials, and other key organizations. Tri-City’s number one objective during this time is the safety of our employees. To that point, we have activated a response plan that focuses on the safety of our people, their families, clients, and community.
Tri-City is requesting that the following guidelines be followed:
- All in-person meetings with clients and/or internal business partners exceeding six (6) people, will be replaced with virtual meetings (exceptions would consist of a critical site visit, for example).
- We urge you to take care of yourself and your family. Click here for prevention guidelines from the CDC.
- Use Doctor on Demand to be seen virtually – https://www.doctorondemand.com/
If there are required job site closures, we will be contacting Tri-City employees who are impacted and will try to place them on other job sites.
It is important to remain calm but vigilant. While it is easy to get involved in speculation and emotion, it is more important to know the facts and help prevent the spread of the virus. I am engaged in discussion daily with our leadership team about the virus and we have contingency plans in place if circumstances change where we are unable to work at a job site, office location or if employees or their family members have been exposed to or contracted COVID-19.
I will continue to keep you up to date with information as I receive it. Company-wide communications and updates are available on the Human Resources Self-Service Portal, http://www.tcelectric.com/coronavirus/ and by calling our COVID-19 Information Line – 407-788-3059 ext. 2512.
Our current environment is fluid and unlike anything that I have experienced in my career. Most likely it is the same for you. While many things remain unclear, I do know we will manage through this. Given the stress and strain that this experience is bringing, it is critical to remember to be patient and kind in our interactions.
As always, you can reach out to me with questions related to Tri-City or our customers.
Jack A. Olmstead
What is Tri-City doing to help mitigate the spread of germs?
Tri-City is dedicated to providing a safe work environment. We have added additional office cleanings, additional hand sanitizers throughout the offices and job sites, and are making disposable antiseptic wipes available to clean commonly used surfaces: doorknobs, break room appliances, light switches, etc. Additionally, we are coordinating with our General Contractors to ensure best practices/screenings on individual job sites when appropriate.
Proactive TIP: Download the “Doctor on Demand” app in advance for convenient access to a Doctor if you would like your symptoms evaluated from the convenience of your home.
Employees who are currently covered under Tri-City’s health insurance plan, co-payments will be covered at 100% for a temporary period for all Telemedicine/Medical Virtual Visits such as Dr. on Demand.
What if I have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19? Who should I direct these concerns to?
