Here is What We Are Doing During COVID-19

How Outdoor Power is responding to COVID-19:

Over the past 16 years Outdoor Power Sales & Service LLC’s primary objective has been to build relationships and take care of those who work and trade with us. In response to the heightened focus and quickly evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, Outdoor Power Sales & Service LLC is committed to do our part to prevent the spread of disease. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our staff, clients, and the broader communities we serve.

We continue to monitor communications from world leaders and health officials and lead with intentions of keeping our environment as “normal” as possible during this time. We understand daily adjustments have and will continue to be introduced. We assure you any decisions made on our behalf are with careful consideration and have our staff and customers' best interest at heart.

In addition to enhancements of hygiene and sanitation, we are restricting interaction and enforcing social distancing best practices. Each facility will uniquely manage foot traffic to include but not limited to:

Established an internal COVID-19 response team
Traffic management
Drive-up service
Visible 6 foot lines
Reduced points of contact
Increase telecommuting opportunities
Deep Cleaning outside business hours
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide guidance as more information on the extent and severity of the outbreak becomes available.

Online Order Placement

  We are continuing to process and ship online orders at the normal fulfillment rate. We have been experiencing some delays on Shipping due to COVID-19 affecting the freight industry. Shipping prices are in constant change right now. So you may be contacted and asked for additional freight surcharge if the freight price moves up to much.Our employees packing online orders are upholding current suggestions by health administrators to avoid the virus spread by mail.

One Final Word

 It is clear most of us have never experienced a situation or circumstance like this in our lifetime, and a pandemic like this is cause for much fear. There is much talk and lots of reports to sift there and many overblown facts and many understated statistics being batted around by people for many different reasons, But we do know ONE ABSOLUTE, and that is GOD IS IN CONTROL.

 A verse from the Bible, "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whither-soever thou goest." JOSHUA 1:9
