While adhering to the CDC and other federal guidelines regarding COVID-19, our industry has been fortunate enough to remain open at our plants and continue to do work at our job sites. Areas of the country are beginning to see a decline in the outbreak of the virus and states are beginning to reopen in strategic phases.
Colas USA and its subsidiaries continue to implement wide-reaching safety measures to protect our employees, their families, and the communities in which we work. Staff working at our open plants and job sites continue to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), adhere to strict safety protocols, and practice social distancing whenever possible.
As our country begins to reopen in phases, the complexity of COVD-19 has identified new challenges in welcoming staff back to the office setting. Throughout Colas USA we have begun to evaluate how we can safely and effectively do so.
Through thoughtful collaboration, each of our subsidiaries has developed Return to Work Policies & Procedures. In compliance with state and local public health mandates, these guidelines detail new safety measures that must be adhered to by staff working within our offices. These measures include, but are not limited to, health screenings prior to entering the building and wearing a face covering. Additionally, we have temporarily implemented restrictions regarding visitors and altered the process for package deliveries.
We are proud to share that during these trying times, Colas USA and its subsidiaries have continued to give back to the communities in which we work. Many of our companies have donated personal protective equipment and other supplies to local healthcare organizations, first responders, and food pantries to ensure that our neighbors remain safe and are able to meet their basic needs.
The greatest asset we have at Colas USA is our people. We will continue to work together to ensure the safety of all of our employees. We thank you all for your flexibility, teamwork, and dedication to safety.

Nationally, we are continuing to watch the development of the COVID-19 outbreak.
As an organization, we are being proactive to protect the health and safety of our teams at all of our subsidiaries and the communities in which we work.
At this time, we have implemented measures within our organization to help prevent the exposure and spread of COVID-19 at all of our subsidiaries.
We have asked certain groups of employees to work remotely until further notice and have restricted all domestic and international travel. Our employees at our job sites and plant locations are adhering to strict practices regarding social distancing, proper hand hygiene, and maintaining the sanitation of all equipment.
We will continue to monitor the situation at a national level and adhere to the guidance within each of the states we do business in.
The best way to prevent the spread of infection is to take care of yourself. Continue to make sure your workspaces are disinfected regularly and you are washing your hands with soap & water or hand sanitizer frequently.
It is natural that circumstances like this create anxiety. However, it is important that we keep calm, follow the advice and guidance of government health authorities, and use common sense when evaluating our own health and well-being.
We thank you in advance for doing your part in helping to prevent the spread of this virus and will continue to update this page should there be any change in our business continuity plan.
