It’s safe to say that within a few short weeks, the global Coronavirus pandemic has changed life as we know it—at least for a while. While other parts of the world and the U.S. have certainly been hit harder than Oklahoma so far, we are still feeling the sting. A growing number of families have already felt the impact of the disease, either by getting sick or losing loved ones. Schools are closed. Non-essential businesses have been ordered to shut down until April 15. No gatherings over 10 people. And we’re all learning new terms like “social distancing” and “flatten the curve.”
Given the current situation, some of our customers—and those who have work scheduled with us—may be concerned about how these changes will affect their hardwood flooring installations, or how we can all stay safe in the process. We at Renaissance understand these concerns, and we wanted to let you know exactly how we are responding to the crisis.
Here’s what you need to know…
Renaissance is open for business. We are a construction company, and construction is considered an essential sector.
Our office is open during normal business hours, but our showroom is open by appointment only. This is to make sure we comply with the current rules requiring no more than 10 people in the same space. If you want to view flooring samples, just call ahead and we’ll schedule an appointment for you. (Remember, we have a new location as of March 26.)
We have ramped up our safety precautions, both in the office and on job sites. We are disinfecting our offices several times per day, and we are practicing the 6-foot rule, both with our customers and with each other. (Sorry, no handshakes or hugs for now. This is for your safety as well as ours.)
No one showing symptoms will be allowed to come in to work. Enough said. 🙂
Our work schedules will go on as planned until otherwise stated. If you have a flooring project in the works, rest assured it is still ongoing. If you plan to have wood flooring installed, go ahead and get on our calendar. No need to wait. We’ll get it done.
Above all, we at Renaissance value your safety beyond anything else. Please be assured we will continue to do everything necessary to keep our customers and our employees safe during this rapidly evolving situation. And we urge all our customers to heed the guidance of our leaders by washing hands regularly, keeping a safe distance, and staying “safer at home” whenever possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, we’re here for you as always. Call us at 918-298-4477.
