This message is intended primarily for colocation customers who visit our facility. As you may be aware, the Governor of Texas has rescinded the state-wide mandates for wearing face coverings and other measures intended to combat the spread of COVID-19. Rather than an over-arching rule for when to require these measures and when not to, it is now up to individual business owners to enact policies of their own. I understand that this may lead to questions as to what the requirements are at various businesses, and to the extent that I can clarify specifically for VIRTBIZ, I wanted to proactively bring you this update.
After discussions with our staff and contractors, the policy at VIRTBIZ will be to continue with a masking policy for all interactions between our staff and clients, vendors, contractors or guests inside our premises.
This policy applies both ways; to our staff and to anyone else who may be inside the building. It is a requirement for the continued employment of our staff as well as a requirement for the continued facility access for any other party. While I recognize that some may have differing viewpoints, this is the policy that made our team members most comfortable. We are nothing without our team, and their safety and security are of utmost importance. Therefore, this was an easy decision to make.
If you are visiting our facility, please be sure that you have a face covering with you so that you can wear that as appropriate when you may come into contact with others. Our team will be doing the same.
We thank you in advance for your continued cooperation.
Chris Gebhardt, President
