HOME RUN MARKETS Update Regarding COVID-19
To our friends, neighbors and team members:
COVID-19 brings a great deal of uncertainty, and just like you, we have been following closely the spread of the Coronavirus. At Home Run Markets, we have been in touch with state and local health officials, and provided CDC and retail industry best practices for store associates to follow for cleanliness and sanitation. We’ve faced many challenges throughout the years, and we believe that we can get through these trying times by being good neighbors.
We are an integral part of the communities we serve and it is essential that we stay open to provide necessary supplies for everyday life. We are committed to staying open for business and have taken steps to make sure that our stores are safe for our friends, neighbors and team members.
We have distributed cleaning supplies which have been EPA-certified to kill the COVID-19 virus, with instructions to increase the frequency of cleaning commonly touched surfaces, including (but not limited to) pump handles, countertops, door handles, cooler handles, touchscreens and pin pads, bathrooms, gas pumps, and other surfaces.
Our store associates are the heart and soul of this company and essential to the continuity of our operations. Employees who feel ill have been told not to report to work and will be evaluated by management prior to starting their shift. Throughout this crisis, if team members miss work through positive tests or mandated medical quarantines, we will work directly with those employees to provide qualifying financial assistance.
There’s no team like the Home Run Markets team. Thankful for these folks who keep things running so our communities get the essentials they need. We have and will continue to implement plans to help protect our customers and employees and help ensure our store can remain open for the convenience of our customers’ daily needs.
For our collective well-being, we need your commitment to follow CDC protocols and if you are experiencing fever, coughing, or shortness of breath, please avoid public places and interaction. We are taking every precaution to ensure we can deliver our essential services throughout this crisis. Please understand and respect the tireless efforts and social distancing of our employees. We may experience staffing shortfalls at some point in this crisis and ask your continued understanding
Thank you for being a loyal Home Run Markets customer. We understand our stores play an important role in our communities and pledge every effort to remain open without jeopardizing the health or safety of our employees or customers. On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for working with us through these uncertain times.
