We are pleased to inform our people, clients and suppliers that as of today, there has been no reported COVID-19 case in our personnel.
Τhis successful outcome is a result of the timely guidelines and measures against the spread of the virus that we took in the rolling division of ElvalHalcor, even earlier than the announcement of the State’s general measures.
We followed official health recommendations and took many initiatives, including training in proper Personal Protection Equipment use and daily monitoring and temperature measurement of our employees. Furthermore, we focused on special care on our people with underlying health conditions, we established remote work, avoided crowded work conditions whenever necessary and had our medical personnel in close contact with employees and relatives regarding health issues.
We know that this effort would have been in vain without the responsibility, seriousness, patience and persistence demonstrated from our people throughout this period.
At the same time, despite the dim conditions around the world and the economic downturn, Elval maintained full operations throughout the social distancing measures although with a deviation from the 2020 budget, as this was set long before the pandemic outbreak in the end of 2019.
We know that our battle against the novel coronavirus is far from over but we remain optimistic that in the short future the international community will find the tools and ways to establish society’s defenses against a possible new outbreak. Until then, we remain ready to take any necessary measures to protect our people and our local community.
