As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, the health and safety of our employees and partners is Rock Spring’s top priority.  We are closely monitoring the guidelines and recommendations set forth from the CDC, as well as local health agencies. 

As a designated essential business, Rock Spring’s offices remain open and we will follow our General Contractor partner’s decisions regarding any job site closures.

We are encouraging our employees to use the same basic health rules they would use with any virus. Staying at home when sick and regular and complete hand washing are the start.

The CDC and local health officials continue to share the following best practices as important steps to prevent the spread of this virus:

  • Avoid interaction with people who are sick/ill.

  • If you are sick, please stay at home.

  • Do not travel if you are sick/ill.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Use an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.

  • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

  • Clean and disinfect your frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe. This includes workstation devices, cell phones, and door handles.

  • Avoid skin to surface contact when using public transportation or mass transit.

  • Do not share food, drinks, tobacco products, etc.
