To safeguard your health and minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19, you can expect the following at Van Meter:

  • A New Look | Our employee-owners will be wearing face masks—especially in public spaces— and/or be stationed behind plexiglass shields.

    As our customer and guest, you may be asked to wear a mask as well. If you need a mask, please inquire with one of our employee-owners.

  • Sanitizing for Safety | Sanitation stations are located at all Van Meter entrances and in meeting/training room locations. We ask that you sanitize your hands frequently while in our facility. Please know our team will be disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and equipment throughout the day.

  • Keeping Our Distance | We are practicing social distancing, maintaining six feet of separation from other people, and we ask that you do the same. We also recommend that you avoid touching your face and that you use your elbow or sleeve should you need to cough or sneeze.

  • Pre-Work Screenings | Our team members perform a temperature check at the start of each work shift. They are also encouraged to stay home or go home if they are not feeling well or know that they were exposed to COVID-19. We ask that you take these same precautionary measures.

  • Prepared for the Possibility | In the event one of our employee-owners were to test positive for COVID-19, we have a robust response plan in place and would reach out to you directly if a potential exposure had transpired.

We have a variety of safety supplies including face masks/shields, gloves, eye protection, sanitizing solution and more on hand to meet your needs. Contact John Smith or Ruth Caves for assistance.
