Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Our Essential Industry

Preface The current landscape across the globe in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic has left nearly every individual, business and community in an unprecedented position, torn between the need for extreme measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 and the need to continue providing for the critical needs of their families, customers, and community. Our industry is facing a constantly evolving struggle as many lines of service are seeing tremendous downturn. The buildings and structures that typically require cleaning, restoration and remediation services are either empty (e.g., non-essential businesses that have been shut down by local government), or they are now occupied full time or are essential businesses (e.g., homes, health care facilities, temporary living spaces) as our communities go into self-isolation and are mandated to exercise social distancing.
