A note on COVID-19

Posted to Landscaping Tips by Samantha Thomas

The health and safety of our employees and residents is always at the forefront of our minds – especially so during this COVID-19 outbreak. DLC Resources has been in constant contact with your Community Management about the situation, and we remain working in your common areas caring for your landscape. 

However, we are taking several precautions to help keep everyone healthy. This includes: 
•    the implementation of a night crew to disinfect all trucks, equipment and tools at the end of each day
•    requirements for all on-site crew members to wear gloves while working and use hand sanitizer use whenever getting in and out of trucks/equipment
•    6-10 foot distance requirements
•    reduction/suspension of non-essential face-to-face meetings

In addition, we have implemented additional sick leave policies and support for all employees and work-from-home requirements for office staff. As the situation changes and evolves, we will continue to reassess and make changes as necessary.

President Announces CARES and FFCR Acts

Posted to Peoria News by Samantha Thomas

Earlier this week, President Trump announced two acts to help individuals and businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act is $2 trillion relief package that provides much needed economic relief to families, businesses and the healthcare industry during the COVID-19 outbreak. Such relief will come in the form of tax free payments and funding for healthcare providers, lifesaving supplies and vaccines, small businesses needing assistance, the Federal Emergency Management Agency Disaster Relief Fund and more. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, requires certain employers to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. All of this information can be found at www.peoriaaz.gov/covid19 under the Federal and Business Resources sections.
