Re: Extension of the Shelter-In-Place Order
To our Valued Employees,
Monday, April 13, 2020 was originally our return to work date. This date is no longer accurate based on potential extensions of the Shelter-In-Place Order. As of today, we do not have a proper date that can be given. A date will be provided once it is available.
Please continue to follow the Shelter-In-Place Order and check the Admiral Tool website for further instructions. We look forward to everyone’s safe return after the order has been lifted.
March 27, 2020 Re: False Information Circulating To our Valued Employees, Earlier today, it was reported through social media that an employee at Admiral Tool tested positive for COVID-19. We now know that this report was false and the employee is suffering from complications due to food poisoning and it currently doing fine as of today. This employee will be monitored prior to returning to work on Monday, April 13, 2020 as a safety precaution. In the future, we ask that all employees refrain from reporting information based on assumptions without having the proper test results. We want to make sure everyone is notified with accurate facts to avoid unnecessary panic. Best regards, Wayne Avers Vice President
March 25, 2020 Re: Shelter-in-place Order in Michigan To our Valued Employees,
As announced by Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Monday, March 23, 2020, a shelter-in-place order for all of Michigan residents has been issued in response to the COVID-19 virus and went into effect the following day at 12:01 AM. Under this order, people will not be allowed to leave their homes with the exception of essential needs and jobs that are labeled essential. Admiral Tool is not labeled essential at this time. Therefore, we are following this order and we will remain closed until Monday, April 13, 2020. Please review the Admiral Tool website (www.admiraltool.com) for updated information. The challenge of the coronavirus is something we do not take lightly. We will continue to monitor this matter closely for your safety. During this critical time, we thank you for your ongoing support. Best regards, Wayne Avers Vice President
