SAN MATEO, Calif – MARCH 6, 2020 – As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we want to share with you the actions our leadership has prepared. At Mercatus, we have a heightened awareness of our responsibility to our employees, customers, and partners. While this developing global situation continues to grip markets and headlines with uncertainty, we are prepared to continue business in the face of any challenge while maintaining the highest level of product support and client service.
We have implemented safety precautions for the month of March including restricting all non-essential global travel and encouraging all Mercatus employees based in our Silicon Valley, Austin, New York, London and India offices to work remotely moving to virtual experiences vs. face-to-face. It is our utmost priority to ensure we provide the healthiest and most secure work environment possible. Travel bans will not affect our ability to provide support, products or services to our clients.
These steps are designed to protect our employees, customers, and partners, but we also take extremely seriously our collective efforts to help society.
Mercatus has conducted scenario tests according to its Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery policies to ensure programs are effective and in place in preparation of unforeseen conditions and unplanned events transpiring as part of the developing situation. We have worked with our vendors to ensure that supply chain impacts from the Coronavirus will not disrupt our ability to provide support, products or services to our clients and are monitoring the situation around the clock.
We are committed to updating our approach as information becomes available from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and local authorities in the days and weeks to come. We will provide further updates as things evolve.
In the meantime, thank you for doing your part to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you and those around you.
