Subject: Guidelines Regarding the Coronavirus
With respect to current media reports and concerns on the spread of the Covid-19 virus (also known as Coronavirus), we along with our partner companies within the TFI International Inc. group have implemented specific measures for our employees to manage through what could be a challenging time for many in the geographies in which we operate. Below is a list of guidelines we have put in place to combat the spread of Coronavirus. These have been communicated with our employees and are being implemented throughout our company and the TFI International group of companies:
Self Quarantine: Employees who have traveled to ANY country or have been in close contact with someone who has recently traveled outside of Canada, are required to self-quarantine for the next 14 days, thereafter returning to work only if they have exhibited no symptoms of the Coronavirus.
Travel, Conference & Training Limitations: Immediately suspending ALL business travel, both domestic and international. Cancelling all conference and training session attendance. We will conduct virtual meetings via telephone or video calls wherever possible.
Promote Hygiene: Adapting regular business practices to promote improved hygiene. Regular sanitization or washing of hands.
Cleaning & Disinfecting: Immediately increase the intensity and frequency of periodic cleaning and disinfecting of all facilities and property.
Contingency Planning: All EVPs and managers are enacting measures outlined in our Business Continuity Plan. Due to the nature of our business, we are prepared for temporary facility closures if needed and the ability for employees to work from home if possible and if required.
Notification: A process has been put in place by which notification must occur immediately through all levels of management when an employee within the organization returns from ANY international destination, or when an employee has been in close contact with individuals returning from international travel.
We take the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers and partners very seriously and would ask for your cooperation and understanding in relation to these requirements. Further updates will be posted to our website as required.
