Morefield Communications Advisory:  COVID-19 Update April 3, 2020

Additional Safeguards Implemented:

For the safety and well-being of our employees, Morefield has decided to further restrict our guidelines on in-person meetings.  In-person meetings within our offices are not permitted for the foreseeable future. Relaxing this guideline will take place as a part of our plans to gradually open up our facilities over time when advisable.

In addition, multiple Morefield employees working onsite at client locations at the same time will be restricted effective today, April 3rd. Going forward only one Morefield employee will be scheduled for onsite client work at a time. We are making this change for the safety of our employees. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience at this time. Thank you for your continued business and partnership.
