Dear Colleagues,

At EDSA, we are passionate about the health and wellness of our employees, our clients and the communities in which we serve. As we face the challenges of responding appropriately to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the preemptive measures we are implementing.

EDSA established a task force several weeks ago that continues to monitor the situation. We are tracking information provided daily by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Based on their recommendations, we have made the decision to transition to a remote workplace environment.

Our robust technologies, network capacity and digital platforms will allow us to achieve the highest degree of collaboration for uninterrupted progress on projects. All of our employees are well versed in the programs and tools needed to ensure service continuity and to mitigate disruptions during the design and implementation of your project. In addition, we have established health protocols for our employees that include heightened personal hygiene and sanitization as well as health screening if they are experiencing any symptoms. To reinforce safe behavior, we have further instituted restrictions on travel, we are limiting in-person meetings and are postponing large-scale events.

During this unprecedented time, we wish to remind everyone that emotional wellness is just as important as physical well-being. We encourage you to continue to find ways to connect with family and friends. Make a phone call, video chat, spend time with your children and enjoy a movie night in with your family.

Thank you for your continued trust in EDSA. Stay healthy and please stay in touch.

Douglas C. Smith, President & Principal
