To our valued customers and prospective customers:
Like many companies across the country right now, NJ Pest Control has been monitoring developments regarding the respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) that spread to multiple countries, including the United States.
NJ Pest Control is committed to the health and safety of our employees and customers and has developed certain procedures to minimize the spread of the disease based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), the World Health Organization, and other federal and state agencies, which are detailed below.
- Employees will conduct any necessary in-person (interior) services equipped with respirators approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and disposable latex gloves. New gloves will be used for each customer. Respirator cartridges will be replaced in accordance with manufacturer standards and guidelines.
- Employees will attempt to complete the majority of services without person-to-person contact. We are available by both telephone and email. If in-person services are required, a physical distance of 8 feet between persons shall be maintained.
- If you have service scheduled and you, a family member, or anyone you have been exposed to has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and/or has acute respiratory illness symptoms (i.e. cough, shortness of breath) or a fever, please alert us immediately at 973-895-2601, 24 hours a day. In such instances, we would prefer to reschedule, or use an alternate means of contact, rather than risk the spread of COVID-19.
- In the event any our employees have been exposed to COVID-19, we will enact self-quarantine procedures. Scheduled inspections, treatments, consultations, and/or trapping programs will be suspended or cancelled and rescheduled as necessary.
NJ Pest Control is committed to providing a safe workplace for all of its employees and ensuring the safety of our customers. We will continue to monitor the situation concerning the COVID-19 virus and will provide updates to this communication as needed.
It is our hope that in doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 our region will experience as little disruption as possible, our local residents will remain healthy, and that very soon, COVID-19 will be in the past.
