As part of critical infrastructure, your work is essential for keeping our families, communities, and nation moving forward in this period of great change. During stressful and uncertain times, it's all too easy to neglect new and chronic health issues. You are focused on taking one day at a time, managing changes at work, and taking care of your families. Talking with your doctor about your blood pressure or getting checked for that new pain you're having seems less important than the fires you are putting out every, single, day.
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic is bringing daily changes, challenges and stresses to all of us. I want to personally assure you that for UnitedAg, everything is business as usual in terms of the services we provide.
Our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of our members, employees, communities, and those we work with and serve. With this in mind, we have quickly established new guidelines for our staff, while still meeting our member needs with the least disruption as possible.
