New Years Greeting and MEA 2021 COVID Policies


We at MEA want to wish everyone a Happy New Years as we begin 2021.  As we look forward to the coming year, and as we reflect on the one we just left, we at MEA thought it wise to share our office policies going into the new year.  While news concerning vaccines continues to look promising, we have continued to modify our current working situation, and adapt in order to ensure the safety of both our clients and our staff.  Going into the new year, we will continue to:
  • We have scheduled a rotation of in office and remote work, having no more than four employees on site at any time.
  • All workstations have been spaced out to maintain 8 feet of separation between our employees.  Employees have been assigned separate restrooms.
  • We have our office on lockdown.  No visitors, sales reps, or client’s visits.  We can do most via conference calls.
  • Site visits will be conducted by Spencer Aitken, Cooper Aitken, and Michael Aitken, in order to restrict the number of staff members interacting with our clients in person.
  • We have hand sanitizer throughout the office.
  • Employees are required to wear masks.
These arrangements will continue as long as we at MEA think is necessary for the safety of all our clients and employees.  In addition, changes and alteration will be made as more information comes from the CDC and Tri-County Health Department, and we will be following the mandates and regulations of the City of Aurora, where our office is located.  These changes and policies, we feel, are essential to the safe conducting of business.  The quality of our product or our responsiveness is not affected by these modifications.  Our main phone line will continue to be answered as usual, and our responsiveness on emails will continue.

We thank all of our clients for their continued support in this time.

MEA is Slowly Returning From Remote Work


MEA Returning to Rice Place
 
We here at MEA are happy to announce that we are slowly transitioning back to being in our office building.  During the Statewide shelter in place orders, all of us at MEA transitioned to remote work in order to continue providing quality products in that rapidly changing time.  As these restrictions begin to lift, it is our hope to gradually return to our office space.  With the ever-changing nature of the current situation, we at MEA will be at 13771 E Rice Place part time, and will continue working remote part time.  We will continue to monitor municipal, state, and national recommendations and orders, and will continue to adapt accordingly.  However, location will not change our commitment to our clients or the quality of our product, and we will continue to be open (from home or Rice Place) from 7AM to 4PM, Mondays through Fridays.
While we have begun to return our office, we have not relaxed our COVID-19 policies and will continue to implement those precautions advised by the CDC.  These policies include:
  • All workstations have been spaced out to maintain 8 feet of separation between our employees.
  • Employees have been assigned separate restrooms.
  • We are maintaining our remote capabilities in the event an employee needs to remain at home or we are required to return to full time remote work.
  • We have our office on lockdown.  No visitors, sales reps, or client’s visits.  We can do most via conference calls.
  • We have hand sanitizer throughout the office.
  • Employees are required to wear masks.
We thank all of our clients for their continued business during these bizarre times.
