To all of our friends,
COVID-19 is impacting everyone in unprecedented ways. The health and safety of our staff and their families is our top priority, and we are committed to taking care of them and our community.
As a small, family-run business, we’re committed to providing for our staff during these uncertain times. We have extended additional paid illness days for our staff to ensure no one comes to work if they are feeling ill and will be providing pay continuation for a period if any staff member needs to be away from work because of the impacts of COVID-19.
For our staff that need to be on-site to produce orders, we have taken significant measures to ensure their safety as we continue to produce and fulfill your orders. For those that can work from home, the majority started last week, and the rest will start working from home in the next couple of days.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly, our plans may as well.
Currently, K-12 schools in both Minnesota and Wisconsin are closed or are closing this week. These closures will have an impact on our staff, and we are continuously modifying work schedules to spread shifts out and minimize the number of staff on-site at any given time. At this point, we are still able to produce 100% of our product line, but we do expect turnaround times to increase by a day or two as these shift schedule changes roll out.
We’re all in this together, so please follow the federal, state and local guidelines for keeping our communities safe. We hope you and your families stay healthy, and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this extraordinary time.
Chris, Tim and Mike Hanline
