To our Valued Customers:
The health and safety of our employees and the community is our top priority as we face the COVID -19 pandemic. We are following the recommendations of the CDC and taking steps to reduce the potential transmission of communicable disease in the workplace including:

  • Instructing employees to stay home when sick.
  • Washing hands frequently with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Instructing personnel to cover mouth and nose when sneezing and discarding used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoiding people who are sick with respiratory problems.
  • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces on a regular basis as defined by newly established cleaning protocols.
  • Instructing employees to avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
We also understand that the testing services we provide are essential to the safety and function of the food supply chain. While facing the COVID-19 pandemic, the maintenance of the food supply chain is more critical than ever, and we have no intention of closing our laboratories. As described in the President' s Coronavirus Guidelines for America, we work in a critical infrastructure industry as defined by the Department of Homeland Security (food supply) and have a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule. This also applies under California Governor Gavin Newsom's stay at home order issued March 19, 2020. Although nothing can be absolutely guaranteed, especially during a pandemic like the one we are experiencing now, we will continue to provide testing, reporting and courier services. In an extra effort to provide continuity of services to our customers, we have secured supplies to maintain current workloads into the future. Like everyone, we are monitoring the situation and will follow Federal, State and Local guidance as it becomes available.

Thank you and please stay healthy and safe,

Michelson Laboratories, Inc.
