Update: October 19, 2020
At Boise Cascade, the health and safety of our associates, families, communities and business partners is our first concern. We are strongly committed to minimizing the spread of COVID-19. We also know that maintaining business continuity is essential for our industry and economy. We’re working diligently to meet product demand. Our associates are available and ready to safely assist customers and supplier partners with current needs and to help create future business.
Our cross-functional crisis team continues to monitor and adjust our protocols as rates of infection fluctuate and state/local regulations change across the country. We continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommended guidance by:
- Educating our associates on ways to reduce the spread of germs and exposure to the virus at our facilities, including use of PPE, practicing social distancing and frequent hand washing, maintaining rigorous cleaning and disinfecting schedules, and employing low-touch techniques for pick-ups and deliveries
- Requiring associates who feel unwell or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 to self-quarantine
- Providing associates with Emergency Paid Leave and other benefits to help their families cope with these unprecedented challenges
- Allowing business travel where an in-person meeting is essential, requested by a customer, and safety processes can be followed, and then adhering to our customers’ COVID policies and precautions at their locations.
We urge diligence in maintaining safety precautions as the uncertainty of the pandemic continues. Thank you for doing your part to protect each other and our communities.
