Considerable time has elapsed since our March 22 post about Covid-19 Mitigation Measures. These measures remain in force, along with a now mandatory facemask policy, installation of HEPA air filters to reduce Aerosol transmission, and stronger guidance to conduct client meeting by telephone or Zoom whenever possible, rather than in-person.
In the month of September, due to the improving Covid-19 situation at that time our staff returned to working mainly from the office rather than from home. Being an accounting firm we are considered to be an essential service, and as such are allowed to continue our operations. However, in view of the current Covid-19 situation in Toronto , we have more recently returned to working primarily from home in order to minimize the risk of Covid -19 transmission among our staff at the office
Our staff are all equipped to respond to emails and access our client data files remotely using VPN, but they still do drop in at the office from time to time, to pick up paper mail, to pick up and drop off other papers, and to do photocopying , scanning, printing and filing.
Our clients are encouraged to send correspondence and other materials by email as much as possible. However, paper-based mail and other written materials can be dropped off during regular business hours in the drop-box located at our main office entrance.
Our business telephone number remains operational and calls to the office number are answered remotely by our office manager Jenny when she is working from home.
