Important Covid–19 Update

Important Covid–19 Update.  The Federal Government announces critical infrastructure sectors that will remain open. Those include our partners in healthcare, food, and water management. We are open and here to support your needs.

covid -1 19 Testing Coronavirus TestingOver 25 years ago EST was formed in response to our local hospitals’ need to respond to a disease outbreak in our community. Since that time, we have provided our customers with guidance in times of both calm and emergency. The current COVID-19 outbreak presents another challenge that we stand ready to help you through.

Just a few days ago, the federal government issued an updated Coronavirus guide for America. This strategic guidance, which was executed by the Department of Homeland Security, identifies the country’s critical infrastructure and what they consider as necessary industries. Each classification noted carries a special responsibility and duty to continue their operations during these challenging times. This guidance outlines the importance of essential critical infrastructure workers and the key role they play in maintaining the services Americans across the country depend on daily to be able to operate during the US joint COVID-19 response.

Environmental Safety Technologies provides support to several industries within the designated classification and thus is considered essential. Those are, healthcare, food and water management. As such, we remain open to serve the needs of our valued friends and customers.

In addition, we have implemented the suggested CDC guidance for work place safety and have fully mobilized our telecommunication policies. Our industrial hygiene personnel are working hard to provide needed services both under government guidelines and specific site policy requests. As federal guidelines are updated, please rest assured that EST will evolve to keep current and remain above standards for meeting the challenge. Together, we will beat the COVID-19 pandemic.
