Dear Easterns Family,
We feel that it is essential to reach out and inform you that we are closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding COVID-19. We are taking our entire Easterns family, which includes our people, our customers, our suppliers, and our communities into consideration with the measures we have implemented. We recognize the heightened concern, and we are doing everything we can to protect our customers and employees.
We are open and practicing CDC recommendations. Maryland and Virginia are open and following state guidelines. We continue to monitor updates while taking additional precautions.
For transparency- here is the internal memo sent to all employees:
Virginia guidelines state that we fall under a non-essential business that can adhere to requirements to stay open. Those requirements are for 10 or less patrons (not including staff) in the location at any time, and maintain CDC recommended social distancing guidance.
Maryland guidelines require us to follow set CDC guidelines.
We will be providing all stores with additional disinfectant supplies to include:
Sanitizing Wipes with Refillable Dispenser
Hand Sanitizer with Refillable Dispenser
Based on the guidance from the CDC, please see the following information to reduce risk of workplace transmission:
Clean Your Hands Often
Stay Home if You’re Sick
Cover Coughs and Sneezes
Clean and Disinfect
We are committed to your health and safety, and we will provide updates on this rapidly evolving situation.
Thank you for your dedication to Easterns!
