An Update from Viking Masek Regarding COVID-19
Company designated as an essential business during coronavirus pandemic.
Wisconsin's Governor Tony Evers has declared a "safer-at-home" order, going into effect at 8 am Wednesday, March 25, 2020. This order mandates, among other things, that non-essential businesses must close statewide through Friday, April 24, 2020 or until a superseding order is issued.
As a business that operates our US headquarters in Oostburg, Wisconsin, we want to keep you updated on how this order affects our operations.
Because of the services and products we provide to essential businesses like food, pharmaceutical, and medical device manufacturers nationwide, Viking Masek's US headquarters is currently deemed a “Supplier for Essential Business and Operations” and therefore will remain open. All departments at our US headquarters are currently functional and operating normally.
Our facility continues to share CDC guidelines and updates with our workforce, including practicing social distancing, use of hand sanitizer and proper hand-washing protocols, and extra cleaning and disinfection of high-traffic areas.
We are also taking the following additional precautions:
- An interim policy that limits visitors to only pre-authorized essential business
- Screening of approved visitors each time they enter our facility
- Temporarily eliminating all nonessential travel for employees
Our executive team continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and remains agile to respond to changing needs and directives.
We remain committed to serving your business needs during this difficult time.
