In an abundance of caution due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, ERA recommends that all sales representatives avoid any non-essential, work-related or personal travel until further notice.
During this time, we encourage you to utilize alternative means of servicing customers, including telephone, electronic communications, or video conferencing.
ERA also recommends that anyone who has visited a country as designated by the CDC as a High-Risk area [Presently China, South Korea, Italy and Iran] in the past 21-days refrain from visiting until such time as this emergency subsides. “The best way to prevent a catastrophic explosion of new cases in the next few weeks,” according to the Washington Post, citing experts, is “to break potential chains of transmission by preventing sick people from coming in close contact with healthy ones.”
For additional guidance and updates, please consult the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
