Dear NASSCO Colleagues,
Today we were notified that a member of the NASSCO team has tested presumptive positive for the COVID-19 virus. I would like to take a few moments to update you on our fight against this virus and what we’re doing to address the concerns we all share.
For our presumptively positive colleague, this individual has not been at work for several days and will remain off-site, as will those employees who have been in close contact. We immediately contacted any employees that were identified as being in close contact with this individual, and they will remain home for a 14-day self-monitoring period. For this case, we followed the containment guidance from the CDC, including the necessary cleaning and sanitizing.
Like all of you, I am concerned about all NASSCO families. It is critically important that we all play our role in reducing the risk to ourselves and those around us. We must continue to practice proper hygiene, social distancing, and the recommended guidelines as we fight together against COVID-19. Most importantly, if you are sick, if someone in your family is sick, or if you or someone in your family has been exposed to the virus, Do Not Come to Work. You have a number of options for ensuring your family’s economic security and should contact HR (619-544-8585) to understand the next steps and available resources.
We remain open because the President of the United States and the United States Navy has mandated that we do so, recognizing that the work we do is so essential to our nation, and that we must not shut down. It is important now more than ever that we meet this challenge together, in a proud OneNASSCO way.
