WE SALUTE OUR WORKERS – YOU ARE ALL ESSENTIAL TO US!
We want to thank all of our workers for partnering with us to provide a safe and healthy work environment. For every action we want to take, we rely on our employees to help us implement it. We’ve all been at this for months, and we can’t stop until COVID is stopped.
We provide educational materials to our team members, but our workers are the ones who read and follow them. We provide them with personal protective equipment (PPE), but they are the ones who work and sweat in those masks, gloves and face shields. We develop a cohort program to limit COVID spread, but it is our guest workers who must live, recreate and work with only those in their cohort.
Here in Okanogan County, the positive COVID-19 test rate is 2.4 percent, nearly four times greater than Gebbers Farms’ rate of less than 1 percent, and those were asymptomatic. That means 99.3% of Gebbers Farms workers tested negative for COVID-19. So, while we should all social distance, wear masks and wash our hands regularly when in our communities, it is even more critical to all of us that our essential workers do this all of the time.
Every person who eats, relies on essential employees around the country. For all they do, and for working with us to keep the virus at bay, THANKS to all our workers! Every one of you is essential to us.
IN HONOR OF THOSE WE’VE LOST
We honor the scores of people who have died during this pandemic – across this nation, our state, and especially in our community. Sadly, the Gebbers Farms family and the Brewster community have also suffered heartbreaking losses during this pandemic. Our hearts go out to their families. These employees, their families and all Gebbers team members are the motivation behind our firm commitment to continuous improvement.
