Ian Martin continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) around the world and are taking appropriate steps to ensure the safety of our employees and contractors, clients, and the communities in which we operate.
We have contingency plans in place to safeguard our team members and business operations, there will not be any disruptions in our service. All Ian Martin offices are open and normal attendance policies are in place.
We are working closely with our clients and are following their respective contingency plans. Here are a few quick guidelines:
Please keep an eye on this webpage for any new updates.
- As always, If you, or anyone in your household has recently travelled, and you experience any symptoms(fever, cough, difficulty breathing or any other flu-like symptoms) within 14 days, contact your local public health authority and seek medical attention immediately.
- If you are ill, or have flu like symptoms, stay home. If you are absent from work, we ask that you notify your Ian Martin Contractor Success representative so they can communicate with your worksite.
- Connect with your Contractor Success Representative to report any absence.
- If your worksite allows you to work from home, consider that possibility.
- If your worksite has a policy regarding COVID-19, please cooperate with their efforts to keep you and their workplace healthy and safe.
- Ian Martin asks that there be no travel within any area identified by US Department of State as high risk.
- If you or anyone in your household has travelled to any of the high risk areas, follow protocol advised by the US Department of State.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information about how to prevent illness.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
