The safety and well-being of our most valuable resource, our KLLM employee drivers, non-driver employees, and independent contractors has been and will continue to be our number one priority as a nationwide carrier. As cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to be reported around the United States, KLLM has taken numerous proactive steps to do our part as one of the largest carriers in the country to continue our excellent service to our customers and the public, while providing a safe work environment for employees and independent contractors.
Our team will continue to work closely with relevant government agencies and public health organizations to thoroughly evaluate our next steps, as needed. We are dedicated to maintaining the highest safety standards in all our facilities throughout the country and will continue to follow the guidelines for businesses and employers set forth by the CDC, as well as update personnel with action items based on CDC guidance.
Drivers, you can read our full KLLM driver statement on the situation with specific guidance and more thorough information in the KLLM app or through your Qualcomm messaging system. We do not take you for granted and appreciate your hard work and dedication to service and safety each day. You have been the backbone of America for generations and that is apparent now, more than ever, during times such as these. Your safety is always our priority and that will never change.
