NAL COVID-19 Update: Essential Business

NAL fully supports the government’s initiatives to “flatten the curve” in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. With the health and safety of its Team Members and their families in mind, NAL has been implementing as many telework accommodations for Team Members as possible. NAL has also taken the lead from our customers and has instituted various plant shut downs to help stop the spread.

In order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce the risk of exposure to our Team Members, their families, and our visitors, we have decided to restrict all visitors at all facilities except for business essential personnel. A General Manager or above must approve access to any visitor other than contractors or vendors that support our normal day to day business such as truck drivers. Business essential personnel will still be asked to complete the Visitor Health Check.  We will NOT allow access to anyone that is currently sick or has been sick in the last 14 days.  If you have traveled to China, South Korea, Italy, or Iran, or had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or have cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days, access will be denied. Visitors can view the updated visitor procedure ahead of time by clicking the “Updated NAL Visitor Procedure” button.

These scholarships were established as a way to help students further their education in the business or technical field. Our goal is to support local students in education and to provide internships for those who wish to remain in the communities we serve.
