It has been determined that Great Lakes Bindery is considered an exempt vendor from the stay-at-home order because of our critical manufacturing subcontractor role in certain specific industries under the Department of Homeland Security guidelines, as well as the MI Executive Order. These include, but are not limited to; healthcare, communications, critical manufacturing, and defense industrial base.
Specific jobs relating, in particular, to healthcare and defense work have continued to come in to our facility, and we need to be prepared to produce these jobs with our same timely and quality service.
We will continue to implement our stringent social distancing and sanitization policies, as highlighted in recommendations for the Center for Disease Control and the White House. If there is any scenario in which employees fall ill, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, they will be asked to stay home for the 14 day quarantine period.
