US Signals Latest Updates Regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus

Please monitor this page as it will be frequently updated with US Signal's latest news and responses to the COVID-19 Coronavirus.


US Signal Continuity Plan for Safe Start Plan, July 1, 2020

The Governor of Michigan has allowed offices to open subject to the requirements of workplace safety as outlined in Executive Order 2020-91. On June 1, 2020, the Governor signed Executive Order 2020-110, rescinding her Safer at Home order and moving the entire state to phase four of the MI Safe Start Plan. 

Using a phased approach throughout June managed by each department, US Signal employees have returned to in-office work. US Signal has safely returned back to office using the requirements and guidance described in Executive Order 2020-91, as well as the CDC guidelines, including but not limited to:

  • Daily surveys monitoring individual’s symptoms and contact with a confirmed Covid-19 case
  • Daily required temperature screenings at office entries
  • Wearing masks when 6ft social distancing is not possible and limiting meetings and number of meeting attendees
  • Outlining steps if an employee were to fail either the survey or temperature screening
  • Limiting visitors from entering the facilities and more 

In addition to our current safety and disinfecting protocols, US Signal has treated the entire facility with EnviroShield Solution with Electrostatic Spray, a CDC and CBC COVID-19 approved hospital grade disinfectant. The EnviroShield equipment treats areas and surfaces that other cleaning systems cannot reach and uses electrostatic technology that applies a negative charge to a 30-micron droplet, ensuring 100% surface coverage.

US Signal continues to monitor the Governor’s executive orders and the CDC guidelines to maintain a safe environment for US Signal’s employees and business continuity planning.
