At JW Aluminum, the safety and well-being of our teammates, customers and suppliers always comes first.
In March, we began taking the necessary precautions recommended by subject matter experts and government officials to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, monitoring the situation daily with a dedicated team to navigate the circumstances vigilantly and support a safe and healthy work environment.
Many states recently began reopening more businesses and have subsequently seen a significant increase in COVID-19 cases. South Carolina is one of those states and unfortunately, we have been notified that some teammates in the Charleston area had tested positive for COVID-19. Our Human Resources team is maintaining strict confidentially while supporting these teammates with resources, insurance contact information and paid time off and leave options.
JW Aluminum is following state, local and CDC guidelines in response to these cases, including direct communication with affected teammates, notifying all teammates and performing contact tracing for positive test results.
JW Aluminum continues to take the necessary precautions and preventative measures as follows.
As a company, we stress the importance of maintaining a safety mindset both at and outside of work. That mindset is more important now than ever before. We encourage everyone to take personal responsibility to protect yourself and others in every environment. Practice social distancing, wear PPE and practice good hygiene.
JW Aluminum is committed to prioritizing safety as we work together to get to the other side of this unprecedented pandemic.
Be safe and well.
