COVID-19 Updates

Jacob’s Message

For the past 24 years, my team and I have helped people in need at their most traumatic times; and while we navigate this uncharted territory that COVID-19 has brought upon us, we are here to help our SoCal family in any way we can.

This goes beyond business right now, and I want you to know that my team and I are here for you.

To our elderly or more at-risk clients, we want to alleviate as much stress as possible during this critical time, so please let us know how we can help. 

Servicing those who entrust us to do so remains our top priority, regardless of the circumstances we’re dealt in the coming days.

My team and I will be there to help you 24 hours a day. 844-24-JACOB

You have a lot of questions. You need answers, and need them NOW! 

Help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in SoCal.

Try These Best Practices

  • Do your part to slow the spread
  • Avoid social gatherings of 10 people or more
  • Work or engage from home
  • If necessary, working on location or place of business make sure to conduct regular environmental cleaning i.e. wipe down with cleaning solution, sanitize workspace and make sure employees are washing hands on a regular basis.
    • Staff should wear and use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment according to your existing policies and procedures.
    • Have soap and paper towels in bathrooms at all times.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel
  • California EDD has issued updated guidance on issues beyond unemployment insurance (e.g. caregiving for ill family members). CLICK HERE for that updated guidance.
  • California’s Department of Industrial Relations has issued updated guidance on what employers are expected to do to help promote hygiene/safety in the workplace. CLICK HERE for that updated guidance.
  • Marketing – It’s critical to communicate openly with your customers about the status of your operations, what protective measures you’ve implemented, and how they (as customers) will be protected when they visit your business. Promotions may also help incentivize customers who may be reluctant to patronize your business.
  • Consider providing in-home services i.e. provide free delivery, etc.
  • Inventory and Supply Chain Shortfalls – While the possibility could be remote, it is a prudent preparedness measure to ensure you have either adequate supplies of inventory for a sustained period and/or diversify your distributor sources in the event one supplier cannot meet an order request.

Yesterday, 170 broken ventilators arrived in Los Angeles from the national stockpile. Rather than complaining, we got a truck & drove them to @bloom_energy to be fixed. Monday they will all be working -- and back in L.A.

This is the California spirit - we will meet this moment!
