COVID-19 Update 

Monday, March 23, 2020

****************************************************************************

On March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-33-20 directing all residents immediately to heed current State public health directives to stay home, except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors and additional sectors as the State Public Health Officer may designate as critical to protect health and well-being of all Californians.

Late Friday night a list of what workers and work falls in these categories was released and we believe that Walpole personnel falls under the following  exemption  “Professional services, such as legal or accounting services, when necessary to assist in compliance with legally mandated activities and critical sector services” ( page 11).  That said, Walpole’s staff will be working both remotely and cautiously onsite to continue to serve our client’s needs.  

In order to keep our clients and staff safe we must continue to practice social distancing and limit contact with clients.

 Our plan is as follows:

  • We continue to strongly encourage phone and virtual meetings. 
  • We prefer any exchange of data to be by mail or email.
  • Should you absolutely require to drop off or pick up information,  the lobby is only open between the hours of  8:30am – 4:00pm Monday to Friday.
  • We are limiting the number of clients/staff in the lobby at any one time and doing our best to consistently sanitize.

As the state of affairs keep changing, we will continue to follow guidelines as directed by state and federal officials. Please stay up to date as we will evolve as needed.  Below is the full text of the release from the State of California regarding “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” as well as links to sites we refer to for current information.
