For some weeks now, the news has been dominated by the worldwide spread of the novel Coronavirus which causes COVID-19. While none of us know the exact trajectory of this public health event, HUNTERS International Insurance has been preparing and adjusting our operations out of an abundance of caution. We have employed multiple sanitation strategies, including eliminating personal contact such as handshakes, supplying sanitizer and wipes to all firm members and throughout our premises, as well as redoubling office-cleaning efforts.
We have encouraged our people to hold meetings virtually rather than meet in groups whenever possible. We have restrictions in place concerning travel and have measures in place to allow firm members to work remotely. We have successfully completed a test during which essentially all of our firm members logged in simultaneously from home or another remote location; we have had robust policies in place that provide for secure and efficient remote work for some time. All of our staff have the ability to securely work remotely.
Developments related to the spread of the Coronavirus are being updated daily. We want to assure you that we are closely monitoring information with the Ontario Ministry of Health and are making adjustments to cleaning practices and other customer-facing interactions as necessary. For additional information please visit the Government of Canada’s website for the most up-to-date travel advice and advisories related to the coronavirus. Additionally, the Ontario Ministry of Health dedicated COVID-19 webpage has the most up-to-date information.
We welcome any questions at any time. Please feel free to contact your own account manager or our President, Brooke Hunter firstname.lastname@example.org
