CVP Updates Regarding Office Closures
CVP Office Closures Continue
May 14, 2020
All CVP offices will remain closed until the end of June as we continue to follow local state guidance and public health conditions to ensure the safety of our employees. As CVP employees continue to work from home, we have hit our stride in terms of productivity with customer success protocols in place. When it comes time to reopen our offices, CVP will take the appropriate steps to safely reintroduce employees back to their office.
Extension of CVP Office Closures
April 20, 2020
While the rate of COVID-19 cases seem to be improving, health professionals are worried about relaxing too quickly on the tactics that are used to prevent the spread (e.g., social distancing). CVP shares the same concern and has decided to extend our office closure to be consistent with local state guidance from the current date of April 24 to May 15, 2020. CVP will continue to monitor Federal and State public health guidance to update extension of this closure as necessary.
Update on CVP Office Closures
March 30, 2020
Given President Trump’s March 29th press briefing and recent “stay-at-home” order issued by the Governor of Maryland, we have decided to extend all of our CVP office closures through Friday, April 24, 2020. We will continue to monitor Federal and State public health guidance to decide if office closures need to be extended. All staff are working from home and are continuing to provide uninterrupted support to our clients.
CVP Announcement About Office Closures
March 16, 2020
On March 13, 2020, President Trump declared a national emergency and is releasing up to $50B in federal funding to help stem the spread of the coronavirus and mitigate the incidence of the disease caused by this virus – COVID-19. The government by itself cannot address this problem without all of our help. CVP is playing its part as a responsible partner and to ensure the public safety of our employees, their families, and our community.
In mid-February when the news from China and Europe turned more serious, we activated our emergency management procedures. CVP began enhanced cleaning routines in all three CVP offices (including wiping of door handles and other high touch-point areas) to supplement the measures that each building management’s sanitation teams were undertaking. In addition, to reduce the probability of community spread of the virus, we also cancelled business-related travel, meetings in large groups, and social committee events. We also launched an internal resource page on our intranet, Beacon, for all employees.
Since then, we have been closely following the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) policy directives to permit telework options for contractor staff. This week, we activated our Business Continuity Plan and have taken the step of closing our physical offices and asked our employees to work remotely for three weeks, from March 16 to April 3, 2020. We will continue to monitor public health conditions to determine if this policy needs to be extended further.
Customers should still continue to expect to have strong communication with their assigned project teams and should also continue to expect that we are being diligent in the management of work and staff to ensure productivity levels do not suffer while staff are working remotely.
Our customers’ mission is our mission. Our twin priorities are to ensure the safety of our employees, their families and their communities, while maintaining our focus on your mission. Together, we will get through the current crisis safely.
