Altoona, PA – 3/13/20

From: Bill Ward Jr., President

As we have seen, the COVID-19 coronavirus situation remains an uncertain one at best. As our cultural values state, we are dedicated to the health and safety of not only our employees, but also our customers that we are interacting with on a daily basis. In an abundance of caution, we are enacting the plan below. This is by no means an exhaustive listing.


-Training is being conducted at each service center and in every corporate department in which employees will be educated on the facts and avoidance techniques.

-In order for the company to gather information about potential risks, each employee will fill out a health questionnaire specific to possible COVID-19 exposure, as will all visitors to Ward locations.

-The Company will be providing hand sanitizer to all Ward locations, for employee use. Latex gloves have also been distributed, for employee use.

 –All Ward locations have been directed to increase and intensify their cleaning and disinfecting efforts to Ward facilities and equipment.


The Company strongly recommends that you take precautionary measures, as well, in order to better protect yourselves, your families, your fellow employees and your communities.  Suggested resources for more information about the virus and preventative measures include:

– Center for Disease Control (CDC) –

– World Health Organization (WHO) –

I assure you all levels of company leadership are closely monitoring this situation to ensure the safety of the entire ONE WARD Team and our customers.
