JMC and COVID-19

On March 13th, 2020, our CFO sent an internal memorandum informing our company’s corporate personnel, staff, managers, and teams of a new company policy. With the threats of the spread of COVID-19 “Coronavirus”, our company consulted with our human resources office to put a plan in action for how our company planned to respond to the guidelines suggested by the CDC.

  • We are sanitizing common areas regularly, such as handles, doorknobs, light switches, etc.  Wipes and disinfectant will be made available, as supplies are available, for employees who may need to clean desks, keyboards, and other work surfaces. 
  • Employees may be sent home in an effort to prevent further infection of healthy staff; we encourage sick employees to stay at home.The CDC recommends that you not return to work until you are free of fever or other symptoms for at least 24 hours without medication that may alter symptoms.
  • Masks are available and are required for employees who are exhibiting symptoms such as coughing.  If masks are not available, as there is a shortage of supply, you will be sent home.
  • We are practicing social distancing
  • Other emergency measures are being developed in the event of a widespread outbreak in our community.
  • We are reviewing the possibility of allowing certain employees to work remotely from home on a temporary basis during this time.
  • Business travel will also be minimized
  • Employees are encouraged to interact with clients on the phone rather than in-person, if possible.

We are monitoring government resources such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the California Department of Health on a daily basis for updates and guidance for employers. It is our priority to stay informed as the situation changes and update our clients, employees, and residents of new temporary policies we adopt during this difficult time. We at Jamison Management Company are committed to serving our community with integrity and safety and plan to have more information at the situation evolves.

If you have any questions or concerns for our office regarding these new policies, or about specific concerns we may be able to assist with, please reach out to us by emailing info@jamico.com
