COVID-19 Policy Update

March 17, 2020

CMENT is currently operating BAU (Business as usual) from our remote locations.  Each staff member has been asked to isolate themselves from all contact when possible.  We believe that taking this step will help to ensure the safety of our staff and help to #flattenthecurve as much as possible.  Please check here often for critical updates.

Prior to this week, we had employed multiple sanitation strategies, including eliminating personal contact such as handshakes, supplying sanitizer to all staff members, as well as redoubling office-cleaning efforts.

We had encouraged our people to work or hold meetings remotely rather than meet in groups whenever possible.

In light of this week’s developments we now have restrictions in place concerning travel and have measures in place to allow team members to work remotely.

Effective Friday, March 13, we will no longer operate out of our 88 Waterpark Location and will put our remote policies in full effect.
