Question & Answer Summary
Magleby Employee Support Fund
Several of you have asked if there’s a way you can help your fellow coworkers in need. We are continuously grateful for the generosity and kindness of our Magleby team. The Magleby Employee Support Fund (formerly known as the Employee Assistance Fund) is available if you would like to make a one-time or regular contribution to the fund or if you need help from the fund.
If you are interested in donating supplies, food, or any other items to employees that may be in need, you can post it in the Classifieds section. If you are in need of supplies, food, or other items, please search the Classifieds or contact HR for assistance. We will do our best to help coordinate.
In addition, if you would like to donate unused PTO to help a fellow coworker out, you may do so. Please contact Nicole Evans, email@example.com, in payroll to make arrangements.
Job Site Shut Downs & Limitations
Blaine County, Idaho issued an isolation order shutting down operations in our Sun Valley office. However, at this time, we have not been shut down in Utah. It is likely that Utah County and Salt Lake County will be “safe ground” for continued work. The hot spots we see now are in Summit and Wasatch Counties, affecting our work in Park City and Heber. We ask each of our team members and trade partners to continue to be diligent in following the appropriate safety precautions as outlined by the CDC, county, homeowners association, etc. so that we can continue to work.
We are actively following all guidelines as to the number of people on a job site. Currently Summit County has the strictest guidelines which allow for more than 10 workers on a site as long as some level of social distancing is happening. The Colony in Park City is only allowing up to 15 people on that project.
Job Site Sanitation & Supplies
We continue to purchase and distribute cleaning and disinfecting supplies to our sites. We’ve purchased bleach and are mixing it to the recommended concentration per the CDC guidelines as well as providing paper/hand towels for use. We have ordered and continue to supply sanitation stations from Honey Bucket. We have also ordered and will distribute masks and hand sanitizer as soon as they arrive.
We are currently doing everything we can to keep working. That includes applying for federal assistance now available through the CARES Act. In addition, each group leader is coordinating to ensure that if possible, we move folks around to different projects to keep people working as best we can. Right now we can manage things for several weeks with federal assistance. However, there may come a time that we have to make the difficult decision to lay some of our team off. Rest assured that we will do what we can to avoid that. For those that are laid off, the CARES Act has made significant changes to unemployment to help during this crisis.
What Can You Do To Support The Company?
The biggest thing is for all of use to have the spirit and attitude of being strong together, begin healthy, not living in a state of fear consumed by uncertainty. Help those around you. Be a good neighbor to those around you. Ask them what their needs are and ask what you can do to solve them. We are all in this together.
