COVID-19 Operations ­ March 20, 2020

Thank you so much for being a client of Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group. Your product safety and the health and safety of our team is so very important. Food Safety has always been a priority for Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group and I want you to know that we have reviewed our policies and procedures from top to bottom to make sure we are doing all we can.
California Governor Newsome announced new strict Stay at Home / Shelter in Home policies on March 19 that affect nearly 40 million people. I just wanted to quickly update on the status here at Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group.
Our industry is food supply and transportation. We also supply refrigerated and frozen warehousing and trucking services. These are all listed as “essential” in the President’s emergency operations as well as the Federal and State guidelines. Our team is operating at 100% to make sure that we are keeping the food supply chain moving as smooth as possible in these uncertain times.
The safety of our associates and the food product in our warehouse is our #1 focus.
· We have elevated all elements and procedures in our sanitation programs
· Enhanced cleaning and sanitation in all facilities
· Implemented a “NO VISITORS” policy for non-essential meetings
· Limited travel by members of our team
· Require all drivers to sanitize prior to checking in or exchanging paperwork
