Yesterday Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced a stay at home order for our state, and mandated all non-essential businesses to close their physical locations by midnight today, March 23rd through April 6th, as part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As referenced in the Ohio Director’s Stay At Home Order, paragraph 12, section v, essential businesses include “Manufacturing companies, distributors, and supply chain companies producing and supplying essential products and services in and for industries such as pharmaceutical, technology, biotechnology, healthcare, chemicals and sanitation, waste pickup and disposal, agriculture, food and beverage, transportation, energy, steel and steel products, petroleum and fuel, mining, construction, national defense, communications, as well as products used by other Essential Businesses and Operations.”
Because of the critical role that Magnus’s cleaning equipment and spare parts provide to all of the industries listed above in the Director’s orders, Magnus Engineered Equipment will remain operational to support the critical infrastructure.
Magnus Engineered Equipment also meets the criteria of CISA’s Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce: Ensuring Community and National Resilience in COVID-19 Response as critical manufacturing infrastructure workers.
The health and safety of our employees and their families, as well as our customers, partners and community, remains our highest priority. We are actively practicing social distancing, have instituted extensive work from home policies where applicable, have made sanitizing products readily available, and maintain daily deep cleaning procedures for our facility.
We will continue to monitor updates from state government, the CDC and WHO, and continuously make improvements in our processes and policies to do our part in stopping the spread of this virus.
Magnus is proud to be able to continue serving our customers during this challenging time. We wish you good health, and as always, thank you for your support.
