COVID-19: Information for ABR Employees & Clients

March 18th, 2020

ABR Is Open; Office Visits by Appointment Only

The COVID-19 Cornonavirus continues to change how we live and work. And, the health and safety of our ABR internal staff, our employees on-assignment at the companies we serve is our primary concern.

Written communication has been sent to our internal staff and employees on assignment about how to take care of themselves, protect others, and to monitor the latest developments. Written communication has also been sent to our current clients regarding our company efforts with respect to COVID-19.

Because the number of confirmed cases in the areas we serve is low, all ABR branch locations and our corporate office remain open for business. All ten ABR branch locations employ 10 or fewer staff. Social distancing and CDC hygiene protocol are being practiced. Branch locations contain private offices for each employee.

However, until further notice, any necessary in-person contact with branch office employees will be by appointment only. Please call your local ABR office first. Social distancing of 6 feet or more must be followed. 

Use Phone, Text Message or Email for Communication

Since most of the service we provide can be done over the phone, text message or email, we encourage you to use those means of communication.

Although there only a small number of reported cases of COVID-19 in the geographic areas we serve, we know this could change overnight. Should the need arise, we have a contingency plan for ABR staff to work remotely, to continue serving our clients, our  employees on assignment and prospective employees.

As we have done for nearly 35 years, we will do our very best to continue providing the very best talent to our client companies. More than ever, it is critical that we do all we can to support the service and production needs of our client companies and continue to employ people throughout this health crisis.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Resources

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when they are sick
  • Cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Not wear a face mask unless they show symptoms of respiratory illness, including COVID-19
  • Wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing (if soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol)
