State by State Employee Communication Template for Essential Employees

Here is a template to use for essential employees:

Team,
In light of all that is going on and the very fluid situation we are in, we wanted to send out information in the event of a shelter in place and what is required of essential workers per Your STATE website.gov guidelines.

Your Company Name Here is considered essential as our business/industry deals with information technology and video transmission to client homes, along with providing both electrical and low voltage needs; we plan to continue to operate as long as our client needs persist.

We will continue to book projects as we are fortunate to have the ability to do so. We also have a pre-check for every job we are going into to protect the safety of our staff. If you are concerned with the ability of not coming in, please communicate this to Your management team member name to arrange personal time off or other arrangements on a per situation basis.

Our office will still be in operation, however the front door will be locked at all times; please use back entrance for access to office. Water and supplies will be downstairs and ready for techs to take. If there is any product needed for vans, please inform office.

The below guidelines are from the Your STATE Name Here website gov website that pertain to Your Company Name identifying essential infrastructure workers: the office will print up the highlighted pages/items on attached so may have in your work vehicle.
