To our Valued Producers,
Didion considers the health and safety of our employees, producers, and all business partners a top priority. We have implemented additional procedures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. With that in mind, we need our partners in business to cooperate in eliminating the spread of the virus.
When delivering to Didion, ensure the following steps are followed:
1.) You are not sick with a contagious disease or virus.
2.) You have not been diagnosed with, been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient or travelled to an area with sustained ongoing community transmission
* of COVID-19 in the past 14 days
3.) Practice social distancing when necessary to interact with others.
4.) If physically possible, open your own hopper doors and tarp.
5.) Ensure equipment that is being shared with others is properly sanitized and handled.
6.) Use common sense hygiene practices.
In addition to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is also cold and flu season. To stay as healthy as possible, please remember take the basic protective measures (provided by the World Health Organization):
1.) Wash your hands frequently. Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
2.) Maintain social distancing. Maintain at least six feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
3.) Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth. Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and make you sick.
4.) Practice respiratory hygiene. Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands afterward.
5.) If you have fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention with your primary care provider or urgent care center.
While the situation is constantly evolving, one thing remains certain: together, we will make it through this. As always, we truly appreciate our relationships with every farm. Please reach out with any questions and be sure to communicate with us on your marketing needs in this volatile time.
