Personal Travel

  • Beginning March 18, 2020, Associates returning from any trip, even within the U.S., will need to request clearance from their HRBP before coming into work. We may require Associates to self-quarantine for 14 days if their travel created a heightened potential for exposure of COVID-19.

  • Currently engaged contractors and temporary workers will continue to have access to our facilities as we work through the business criticality of their work
  • We will require “business-essential” approval before allowing new contractors or temporary workers into our facilities 

On-Site Meetings

  • Avoid scheduling extended meetings or events with more than 25 Associates in a relatively confined space (e.g. conference room)
  • Practice “social distancing” by allowing 3 feet of space between people and refraining from handshaking or hugging

Fitness Centers

  • All on-site fitness centers will temporarily close effective 8:00 AM on March 18.

Health Clinics

  • The Health & Wellness Clinics will remain open, but may move non-essential appointment visits.  The clinic will contact you should your appointment need to be postponed.  If you have any questions, please contact the Clinic at 920-907-3922.
  • COVID-19 specimens may be collected within our Grande clinics, but only if the practitioner deems necessary based on your symptoms.  At this time, you cannot request to be tested if you are asymptomatic or if a practitioner has not requested the test.
