A Message To Our Clients and Friends
May 15, 2020
Following orders issued by the Governor earlier this week, Bourgeois Bennett offices will begin to reopen on Monday May 18, 2020.
We have implemented our Re-Entry Plan and will have partners and staff in our offices on a rotating basis. Following state fire marshal and building management directives, we will limit the return of our staff to meet the 25% capacity guidelines that have been issued. During Phase 1 of the Governor’s re-entry plan, we encourage you to call or email your team member as we are admitting clients to the office only if they have an appointment.
We will be using a touchless thermometer to ensure that no one, client or employee, enters our office with a fever. All guests and personnel are required to wear masks while moving about our office and we will only use our two largest conference rooms for client meetings. Hand sanitizer will be everywhere and the office will be sanitized daily for everyone’s safety.
If you intend to visit our offices, we recommend you follow the same health guidelines we are requiring of our personnel. If a team member has fever but no COVID symptoms, they are to remain at home and have no fever for 72 hours before returning to the office. If they have experienced COVID symptoms, they cannot return to the office for 7 days. If a team member or someone they have come in contact with has contracted COVID, the team member must self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to the office.
We are implementing every possible safeguard to protect you and our employees. Safety is paramount.
We are appreciative of the opportunity to have continued to serve you during his crisis. The ever-changing stimulus packages have presented many opportunities to assist your businesses. We continue to monitor tax and financial developments as Congress scrambles to define policy after the fact while simultaneously introducing new relief proposals. Challenging times indeed.
We will continue to be responsive to your needs as we move into the next chapter of recovery. Should you have any questions regarding the continuity of our services to you during these historic times, please contact me or your Bourgeois Bennett advisor. If we can assist you with stimulus package consulting, technology challenges or business continuation practices, please call as our professionals are ready to help. Should your need be urgent and you cannot reach your team member, please call my extension (236) or call my direct line at 504-840-3836. I will call you personally to address your concerns.
Please continue to be diligent during this re-entry period and remain safe during this crisis. Your health and that of your family and friends is our first priority.
