Hi Everyone,

I wanted to update you on plans for next week. 

For furloughed employees, unless you are contacted by your manager about a start date, you will remain on furlough until further notice, at least for another week. You will continue to be eligible for unemployment benefits while furloughed. 

Employees working from home or reporting on site for essential operations should continue to do so for the time being unless told otherwise by your manager. 

EH&S will email you regarding additional safety procedures and training materials for when you return to work. They’ve been working non-stop to help ensure we keep you and your teams safe. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

For questions, please contact your manager or HR partner, or email [redacted address].

Thank you all so very much for everything you do to ensure the success of our company.
