As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, some states have declared “stay at home” in effort to manage the spread of COVID-19. On March 25, 2020, Governor Tim Walz joined these efforts and declared orders for Minnesota, where Coldspring’s headquarters is located. This is in addition to previous announcements in other parts of North America where Coldspring also runs operations.
According to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), businesses involved in the construction industry and death care industry are designated considered “essential” to the citizens of the USA. As a manufacturing leader in these industries, Coldspring has a special responsibility to maintain operations and support our customers as they fulfill their commitments to their customers.
Our commitment is to continue providing exceptional service while ensuring the health and safety of our employees and partners. Coldspring leadership has set forth the following outline for continuing work in adherence to CDC recommendations:
