Statement – June 30, 2020
Riverbend Nursery would like to share that last week, we were notified one of our employees tested positive for COVID-19. We are wishing that employee a speedy recovery and are doing our part to protect the health and safety of our community. Within 30 minutes of receiving this information, we implemented a thorough COVID-19 response plan we prepared based off of CDC guidelines. This plan included informing the company, determining who came in contact with this employee and asking those employees to quarantine and seek testing. These employees were informed they will be paid for this time under the CARES Act. We are continuing to work with local health officials to ensure we are taking the proper next steps to keep the community healthy. We are holding an on-site testing for employees on Wed., July 1.
