At GreyDock, the safety and well-being of our employees, family members, and customers we serve continue to remain our top priority. As COVID-19 continues to evolve, we will continue to monitor the situation and ensure we take all precautions to keep our team members healthy and safe. We are committed to providing the same seamless shopping experience our customers and pros have come to rely upon.

While taking guidance from the CDC, and abiding by all local, state, and federal guidelines, we would like to share some of our ongoing procedures we have put in place to protect our employees and facilities.

Section 1 - Awareness

It is our utmost care and concern to protect our employees, families and customers. We encourage our employees to take responsibility to inform or report any contact with COVID-19 or suspect contact. All employees with suspected contact will be sent home and monitored, only to return with a required work notice from their doctor.

Section 2 - Options

If feasible, we will allow employees to work from home depending on job responsibilities. Pay will remain the same. If the option to work at home does not exist, we will work to maintain their employment status. For all employees, whether working from home or working onsite, mangers/supervisors will work to create flexible schedule where possible. We will remain open to conversations, and if possible, altered schedules.

Section 3 - Cleanliness

We will continue to acquire and purchase automated Purell dispensers and Clorox wipes for all public and common areas. We will continue to practice social distancing in all areas and the building will be cleaned professionally every day. In addition, we will be using Supervisors, Maintenance and Managers to regularly clean common surface areas such as lunch tables, microwaves, refrigerators, doors, carts, pallet jacks, fork truck controls, computers and screens, work-stations and tools, and any other commonly touched items as well as asking employees to help clean as often as possible. We have equipped all work areas including every machine and every shipping area with a cleaning solution and paper towels along with hand sanitizer. Managers will be constantly walking the floor educating and monitoring proper cleaning etiquette. Social distancing will be encouraged, and a clean work area before starting work will be enforced.

Section 4 - Shipments to Customers

GreyDock’s primary package delivery services, UPS and USPS are following strategies and measures recommended by the CDC and Public Health Departments.

UPS has provided the following information regarding the actions it has taken along with informative information regarding receiving and handling shipments -

“UPS is following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are reminding our employees about frequent hand washing, and we are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our facilities and equipment. Importantly, we are asking that our drivers, pilots, and other employees stay home from work if they feel sick.

“Many people are asking the same question: is it safe to receive and handle a shipment? The WHO and CDC have stated that the likelihood of catching the COVID-19 virus by touching cardboard or other shipping containers is low.

“From the outset, UPS has maintained delivery services except where limited by government restrictions. We have also worked in partnership with governments around the world to obtain exceptions that allow our shipments to continue in restricted areas.”

Going forward, GreyDock will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation to stay abreast of the changing landscapes. Please be patient and look out for one another. We will get through this together and be stronger than ever.
