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.  If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) to anyone WITH SYMPTOMS waiting on test results, diagnosed or quarantined in relation to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or have had cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 24 hours, access will be denied. Visitors can view the updated visitor procedure ahead of time by clicking the “Updated NAL Visitor Procedure” button.
