COVID-19 Response: Unprecedented Times Require Extraordinary Measures

March 30, 2020

The premier of Ontario and health officials have spoken: “Stay home!”

The most important way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid coming into contact with others, and the best way we can do this is to stay home unless absolutely necessary. If you need to go out for groceries, medicine or other provisions – or simply to get outside for a walk – it has been suggested that you’re very vigilant and aware of the social distancing policy that is in place. Wear a mask, wash your hands, sneeze into your sleeves, but staying home is the surest way to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of the virus. The sooner we all do this, the sooner we will return to somewhat of a normal life.

At Hutcheson Sand, we’ve responded accordingly and hope that our clients and community is doing the same. In the words of our President & CEO, Bruce Smith, “We are committed to the health of our employees, their families and our customers, and it’s extremely important that we all do our part to ensure the health and safety of all.”

In the meantime, we’re doing what we can to keep local businesses running and people employed. We suggest ordering what you need (and can) online through local businesses in your area, like food, groceries, plants, and even sand and gravel! Hutcheson Sand is open, delivering and ready to meet our customer’s needs.

Most importantly, we’d like to send a HUGE thank you to the all frontline workers supporting communities across Canada during this time. Your commitment to helping others stay safe and healthy is greatly appreciated, and your bravery is inspiring to us all!

Stay healthy and stay safe!
