Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center: Protecting Employers and their Workforce:
The JRW Associates Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center is a collection of news and resources assisting our partner clients in their efforts to proactively address the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 is an international, national and NC public health emergency transmitted mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. In full preparation, our team will continue dedicating our best in class resources and tools to help our partner clients, their businesses and employees stay on the forefront of this global pandemic.
We will continue to closely monitor the spread of COVID-19 and will remain following guidance from appropriate government health organizations. Our firm has instituted restrictions on domestic and international business travel as well as any regularly scheduled in person meeting and events. Additionally, we have approved and implemented formalities exercising mandatory Work-From-Home guidelines for our colleagues and staff.
We fully recognize no contingency action strategy can sufficiently eliminate the disruption of temporary service interruption. During this time, our teams key focus is to safely continue advising, educating, communicating, and supporting our partner clients with superior service.
Please continue to refer back to the COVID-19 Resource Center for reliable updates.
