On March 16, 2020, the Province of PEI declared a Public Health Emergency as part of its efforts to flatten the curve, and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Non-essential businesses have closed with others taking careful precautionary measures.
We recently chatted with Richards’ Roofing to see how COVID-19 is affecting their business operations.
Richards’ Roofing is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of their staff, customers and the general public. Therefore, they have chosen to take precautionary measures in order to adapt to the current pandemic and the ever-changing island during this time.
Under the guidance of Dr. Heather Morrison, PEI Chief Public Health Officer, they are following guidelines and making adjustments to their daily operations to keep everyone safe. At this time, re-roofing is still being considered an essential service; therefore they are taking necessary steps in order to continue providing this service.
What precautionary steps are Richards’ Roofing taking?
- They ask customers to keep a safe distance from our staff, a minimum of 6 feet
- Their staff are practicing physical distancing, a minimum of 6 feet
- All staff are to wear gloves
- When/if additional materials are required by staff during a project, they are able to pre-order and arrange a curbside pick-up with their suppliers, thereby keeping their staff out of stores
- All Estimates/Invoices are being sent via e-mail
- They are currently working with reduced staff in order to allow those without access to childcare to be home with their children
- They have members of their team who have travelled out of province and are following their mandatory 14-day self-isolation
