For Immediate Release
To our valued customers and partners,
The Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, announced via executive order Thursday March 19th, 2020 that the state will be under quarantine effective immediately. Per his press conference and executive Californian businesses should follow the National Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce. Per the Public Health portion of the document, “Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operations of residences.”
De Anza Appliance outlined in a March 19, 2020 press release we are taking proactive action to keep our clients and associates safe.
In addition the following new precautions are adopted effective immediately.
- De Anza Appliance has procured disposable gloves to use whenever possible and requested.
- Practice social distancing during daily staff meetings to update on operations and local, state, and federal COVID-19 news.
- Treat any community laundry room features like commonly touched knobs, buttons, door handles, and other publicly touched items with extra care and sanitation before and after repair and entrance and exit to the room.
- Discontinuing general maintenance services only calls to allow capacity for appliances repairs particularly downed cooking appliances, flooding appliances, and not cooling refrigerators.
In the light of mandatory quarantine operation of residential cooking, laundry, and refrigerator equipment is crucial to maintain home food supplies and personal hygiene and will remain so long as the county, state, and federal jurisdictions allow operations.
Again we want to thank customers who have proactively cancelled appointments due to voluntary exposure quarantines and illnesses. Continued prayers go out to our first response and medical providers, grocers, trade people and other businesses staying open to provide critical services to residents of Alameda, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties and the greater San Jose Metropolitan area.
