COVID-19 Update and Safety Reminder for Employees

This is a reminder if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (revised list of symptoms noted below) do NOT come to work and to contact HR at or call (619) 544-8585.

COVID-19 Symptoms noted by the CDC:

  • Cough (not related to allergies)
  • Change in your ability to smell or taste
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Runny nose or congestion (not due to allergies)
  • Unusual muscle pain

It is important we remain steadfast in our commitments to all the protective measures in place at NASSCO facilities. We need everyone’s help to keep the NASSCO family safe. Nobody can predict how the virus will affect someone else, and it is at the very heart of our actively caring safety culture to do everything you can to prevent the spread of the virus to someone else.

NASSCO’s onsite testing program continues this week. This process is going well and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation. This safety measure helps identify individuals who may not be experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms but could be unknowingly carrying the virus.

While this testing is a proactive approach to minimize the spread of the virus at NASSCO, we continue to have individuals reporting to work while experiencing flu-like symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. We have also had individuals participating in carpools, which later resulted in multiple positive COVID-19 reports. This is contrary to established and repeatedly publicized safety protocols and is unacceptable.

Remember, by entering a NASSCO facility, you are agreeing to wear a face covering and you are not experiencing any flu-like symptoms. These safety initiatives are like any other safety regulation, and if you “see something, say something.” Please do your part in keeping the NASSCO family safe and notify your supervisor if you observe anyone not adhering to these safety protocols.
