Keeping Everyone Safe and Healthy
Keeping our Employees Healthy
We’re committed to protecting our employees and our community. Many of our employees will be working remotely. We are using technology to reduce large meetings with team members and vendors to continue business operations while avoiding congregating in confined areas. We also temporarily moved some of our employees to other locations to create greater social distancing across teams.
Protect yourself from phone, email and online scams related to COVID-19.
Scammers are taking advantage of the feeling of uncertainty and are sending malicious emails, calls and texts about COVID-19. We encourage customers to be vigilant and protect their personal information. The FCC and FTC offer the following tips:
- Whether via call, text, or email, do not give personal information to anyone you don’t know, and do not click on text or email links that seem suspicious. They could contain malware.
- Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying that have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
- Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits. There currently are no vaccines, prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). At this time, there also are no FDA-authorized home test kits for the Coronavirus.
- Before you make a donation, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites, do your homework. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
- Hang up on robocalls. Don’t press any numbers. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes. The recording might say that pressing a number will let you speak to a live operator or remove you from their call list, but it might lead to more robocalls, instead.
- Know who you’re buying from. Online sellers may claim to have in-demand products, like cleaning, household, and health and medical supplies when, in fact, they don’t.
- Visit the FCC website for examples of some specific scams that have been reported.
