March 17 - Wow - so much can change in so little time!
COVID-19 sure is making headlines! It is all anyone talks about. Rightly so, as we are all asked to hunker down for the next couple of weeks. As of today, there are no cases of this virus in Cochise County.
Here is a letter that we sent to our clients:
As we learn more about the current pandemic, COVID-19, we want you to know that we at Grasshopper Landscaping are taking precautions seriously. We will still provide you with great service but we will do a few things to help prevent contracting and spreading the virus.
Here is what we will be doing to help mitigate the contraction of COVID-19:
- We won't be shaking your hand
- We won't enter your house
- We won't enter your garage
- We will stand 6 feet away from you
- Technicians and estimators will leave if they feel they cannot remain safe.
- Our office will be temporarily closed to walk-ins. However, we will still be in the office and available to help by phone or email.
- We are encouraging all employees to wash their hands frequently, maintain a healthy diet, get enough sleep, and encouraging sick employees (and employees with sick family members) to stay home.
Our first goal is to not contract the virus and our second goal is to prohibit the spread of the virus. Many of our clients are elderly and their health is very important to us. We are exposed to many people daily as we go from property to property. For the most part, the virus doesn't prohibit us form doing our normal jobs.
We plan to operate as usual through this pandemic. We will keep updated on COVID-19 as there are new updates frequently. In the event that we need to shut down or delay our operations due to the virus, we will do our best to communicate our actions and solutions to you.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Damon and Marie Trejo
