This past week, NASSCO has increased the frequency of disinfecting, and added a new method to accomplish this. We have begun using foggers to disinfect many of the common areas in the shipyard, as well as some shipboard and indoor building spaces. This is being performed daily by our Maintenance Team and a contracted company that specializes in this type of work. The fogging is currently taking place on 1st and 2nd shift. Some of the common areas disinfected on a daily basis include lunch areas, restrooms, handrails/stair towers, turnstiles, gangbox areas, and handwash/bluehouse stations.
Disinfectant fogging is a good supplement to our existing processes used throughout the facility to disinfect high-touch surfaces, but please remember to continue to wash your hands regularly, wear your face coverings, clean your face coverings, and practice social distancing.
NASSCO has been informed of additional positive reports of COVID-19 this week. Contact tracing and disinfecting efforts are underway. We are continuing to work hard to minimize the spread of the virus at NASSCO and we thank you for doing your part to keep your fellow shipbuilders safe.
This weekend we honor and remember the military members that have served in many wars and battles throughout history. We salute them, and their families, for the sacrifices made in service to our great nation. Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.
