COVID-19

COVID-19

As a business that “supports the manufacture and distribution of forest products” (per The DHS Memorandum) and serves the commercial and residential construction markets, RedBuilt qualifies as an essential business. We will continue to operate and serve the needs of our customers while keeping our associates safe.

 

To help keep our associates and their families safe from the COVID-19 virus, RedBuilt has developed COVID-19 Prevention and Preparedness plans.  The plans reinforce best practices for how to keep the virus from spreading (prevention), as well as details about what to do if you have had exposure to a known infected person, or, if you have been diagnosed with the virus (preparedness). The plans are heavily based on guidance from Center for Disease Control (CDC), with input from many of our associates.

 

California has issued a statewide “Stay at home order” (Executive Order N-33-20), advising “individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors”.  The order references The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Memorandum on the identification of essential critical infrastructure workers during COVID-19 response. In addition, the California government specifically lists workers who serve “construction, including housing construction”. We will continue working while maintaining the precautions put in place over the past two weeks at all of our facilities to keep our associates safe and “flatten the curve”.  RedBuilt has implemented rigorous cleaning routines, adjusted shift and break schedules, moved to remote work where possible, and is leveraging technology in lieu of face-face meetings.
