We’ve advised our employees to implement social distancing where it’s practical to do so. As part of its community mitigation strategy, the CDC recommends social distancing in the workplace and at home. At work, specifically, this means limiting in-person group gatherings at all Weatherford locations. Our teams have been instructed to use video conferencing and calls as an alternative.
It is still vital and necessary to engage regularly with our customers. Instead of in-person customer meetings, we are using video-conferencing applications to continue the business.
While we have implemented social distancing, we are also educating our workforce about the myths associated with COVID-19, as communicated on the WHO myth buster website. False information leads to stigmatization, which can undermine social cohesion and prompt possible isolation of certain groups. This social isolation can contribute to a situation where the virus is more, not less, likely to spread. To keep our employees and customers safe, we are sharing information to let facts, not fear, drive decisions.
