Covid 19 – Evolving Policies – March 24, 2020

 

As we move through these unprecedented times, Homeland Grain is continuing to evolve its policies regarding COVID 19. We are listed as an essential service and we are open for business as usual, mostly. However, at this time we will be taking the same steps that many businesses in the area have taken by attempting to drastically reduce the interpersonal contact between our customers and our staff.

Do not come on site if:

  • You are feeling any symptoms of illness
  • You have travelled within the last 14 days

 

From today, we will be asking people not to enter the office building if at all possible, even if you do not fall into the above categories. We ask that if you need to make contact regarding marketing, placing feed orders, paying accounts, or anything else that you please call 519-424-9871, email, or text any of us at the office. We will be happy to bring cheques out to your vehicle, and we will also be implementing a document drop off/pick up bin in the foyer of the office. 

With regards to the elevator facilities, we are similarly asking that customers and truckers not exit their vehicles when on site where possible, and maintain a minimum 6' distance from other people. You do not need to sign tickets, as the scale house is also a staff only area at this point. If you have not already downloaded our App, please do so as it does give immediate access to tickets, and settlements.

 

We hope that by taking these measures we continue to keep our staff and our customers healthy and business (mostly) as usual.
