With the increase in the attention to COVID-19, we want to share with you that O’Connell Electric is continuously monitoring the situation. From the beginning, our focus has been and remains on the health and safety of our employees, our customers and the communities we work in.We are constantly evaluating the COVID-19 impact and monitoring available information from the CDC and WHO. As their recommendations change, we will update our Pandemic Response Plan as needed. Additionally we will alter our communication to our Employees.

We are actively communicating to our Office and Field Personnel, providing appropriate updates as necessary. We have provided guidance to our Leadership Team regarding business continuity of our office and support staff in the event that administrative functions are significantly impacted. Additionally, our Field Operations have developed individual Business Continuity Plans for their specific operations.

Our Field Personnel work in dynamic environments that may pose unique challenges. We continue to monitor those environments and work with our Customers to update and educate our Employees. We encourage our Employees to be attentive to their surroundings and speak up if they feel unsafe or concerned about their personal health.

We thank our valued Customers for continuing to keep us abreast of your response to this evolving situation. We all share the common goal of keeping everyone healthy and safe.
