COVID-19 Virus Update

Important Business Update Regarding U.S. Operations during the COVID-19 outbreak


April 2020

As we work to protect the health of our employees and our communities during these extraordinary circumstances, Elma Electronic remains intent on communicating with our customers about our operational status.

On March 19th, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) issued guidelines defining the Defense Industrial (DIB) base as an “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce”, supporting national security commitments to the federal government and the U.S. military. In order to continue supporting commitments to our customers, all of Elma Electronic’s U.S. facilities will remain open. We are focused on maintaining business operations to the extent possible, while insuring a safe environment for our employees.

Elma’s extraordinary team is working closely with our suppliers and partners to provide the best possible service to our customers. We’re closely managing material deliveries and implementing risk mitigation actions in line with CDC recommendations.

Elma actively monitors and follows the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for COVID-19. Our guidelines and procedures are in accordance with federal, state and local directorates. In order to meet the health and safety guidelines, we’ve put the following measures into place:

  • Employees are instructed to stay home if they are exhibiting any of the COVID-19 symptoms
  • Safe hygiene practices and procedures have been put in place at all facilities, including increased sanitization of work areas
  • At risk personnel have been asked to remain in their homes until the threat has passed
  • A work-from-home policy is in place for those who are able to do so
  • Social distancing policies have been communicated to all employees
  • In areas where workspace is typically in closer proximity, we’ve implemented a rotating work schedule to insure groups less than 10 and 6 ft separation
  • All those working in our facilities are wearing a face mask when interacting with others or when going from department to department.
  • Travel restricted to essential domestic travel only
  • Limiting non-essential site visits by external visitors

On behalf of the entire Elma team, we thank you for your continued confidence in our partnership. We sincerely wish you and your family a healthy and safe journey navigating these uncharted waters.
