LCI Team Member Information
Communications & Updates
We are continuing to monitor the spread of Coronavirus. This is a rapidly evolving situation. We are reviewing our guidelines on a real time basis and adjusting if needed based on new information. We will provide updates as they are available. Currently, we have no confirmed cases of Coronavirus at any LCI facility. To minimize your chance of illness, please observe the following CDC prescribed precautions:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
• If you believe you are experiencing any symptoms, you should contact your nearest healthcare provider for testing/treatment
• Like all illnesses, if you are sick stay home and notify your leader
• Shortness of breath
• Muscle & body aches
• Sore throat
Emergency Warning Signs:
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
• New confusion or inability to arouse
• Bluish lips or face
The following team is the governing body for all decisions, guidelines and rules associated with the Coronavirus:
• Jason Lippert, Brian Hall, Ryan Smith, Jamie Schnur, Andrew Namenye, Nick Fletcher, Andrew Murray and Rock Lambert
What happens when a team member is sent home for quarantine?
• All remaining team members continue work as usual. LCI’s regular attendance policy will apply.
• The Leadership Team will consider requests for leave from team members who have a documented medical condition that puts them at a higher risk of complications from the virus (i.e., pregnancy, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, etc.) on a case-by-case basis. Team members should make such requests with Human Resources.
If we have a confirmed case of Coronavirus:
• The infected team member’s department and public areas of the facility will be professionally disinfected
• Team members in the affected department will be provided temporary work in other areas of the facility and will be returned to their department when disinfection is complete
• All pay related questions should be directed to HR
• Until further notice, cancel all non-critical meetings, group training and plans to attend large, non-essential events. Consider virtual alternatives such as Skype or other platforms
• Avoid close physical contact with others and do not form groups in break or lunchrooms
• Avoid handshakes, high fives, or any other personal congratulatory behavior
• Anyone traveling out of the U.S. at any time, including spring break, must self-quarantine for 2 weeks before returning to work. Any domestic travel to regions within the U.S. with larger known outbreaks, will require 2 weeks of self-quarantine as well. Unless other arrangements have been approved by the Leadership Team, the quarantine period will be treated as unpaid leave.
Benefits & Wellness
LCI is committed to assisting our team members during this time of uncertainty. To assist with any questions relating to benefits / medical / EAP services, we wanted to provide you with the following information.
COVID-19 (Coronovirus) update: The federal government is allowing new options for states to amend their laws to provide unemployment insurance benefits related to COVID-19. For example, federal law allows states to pay benefits where:• An employer temporarily ceases operations due to COVID-19, preventing employees from coming to work;
• An individual is quarantined with the expectation of returning to work after the quarantine is over; and
• An individual leaves employment due to a risk of exposure or infection or to care for a family member
In addition, federal law does not require an employee to quit in order to receive benefits due to the impact of COVID-19. State specific guidance on unemployment insurance benefits is listed below. To file a claim, please click on the link provided for the state that you work in.
Leadership Development & Resources
