COVID-19 Policies & Practices
Updated: Jan 24
An Update from Evergreen Refreshments
As many employees return to the workplace, Evergreen Refreshments wants to assure you that we are doing everything in our power to keep your break rooms safe for the people keeping your business running. We believe a safe break room environment can help keep employees on site during the day, thus decreasing the chance of contracting illness outside the workplace and potentially bringing it back to the rest of your workforce.
Below is a letter to our client from Arthur Siller, our VP of Operations, outlining policies and procedures relating to Covid-19. We encourage any of our clients to reach out to us if they have any questions or concerns about these policies. You may have also enacted policies of your own and we hope you will share those with us so we can continue to meet your needs and expectations.
To Our Valued Clients:
During this challenging time, we want to share with you our policies and actions, as they relate to Coronavirus (COVID-19.) Please know that we are taking this situation very seriously and are undertaking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of all our employees, products, and services.

Your Route Driver has the appropriate cleaning products and tools to ensure this sanitization
Gloves have been provided to all Route Drivers, to be used when servicing your location
For our management teams, we have minimized client meetings and field visits
Here are the steps we are taking in our own facilities, as of now:
