Weekly Wrap-up, 8-7-2020
Out of an abundance of caution we are asking our partners who support individuals outside of the workday to closely monitor their situation ensuring that extra precautions are taken to promote hygiene, cleanliness and health of individuals. We understand that some behavior is difficult to manage but if someone is ill or not using common cleanliness protocols we assume that they will be kept home. If an individual showing symptoms of illness or visibly lacking acceptable personal hygiene arrives at Lafayette you will be contacted and expected to promptly pick up your loved one. Please ensure that Lafayette has accurate and up to date contact information.
Lafayette Industries is closely tracking the Covid-19 situation.
Lafayette has not experienced any instances of Covid-19; all measures are precautionary.
