We are pleased to share with you that this past week we remain successful in our fight against the Coronavirus across our 13 distribution operations. We continue to see attendance in line with pre-COVID rates. To say we are proud of our associates for their vigilance in this fight and commitment to service our customers is understated. We have the best associates in the industry working the front lines to ensure the success of our customers’ supply chains for the well being of all Americans.  Thank you to all our associates for your dedication and sacrifice. 

We will continue communicating with you weekly in this COVID-19 Update even as our efforts have shifted from initial response to control. As we move forward through the days and weeks ahead during the global pandemic, we will continue to follow the most recent recommendations of the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Surgeon General of the United States.
