Here at Miron Construction Co., Inc., we are focused on the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, their families, and of our communities. Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented moment in history. The global COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts are especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
We are working diligently to remain informed and react to developments swiftly and accordingly. To the best of our ability and control, we are working to ensure that we maintain business continuity, and that our employees stay healthy and safe. Throughout our 102-year history, our company has witnessed and survived many significant world events. We have complete faith that together we will get through this one also.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have implemented several steps to attempt to stop any possible spread of the virus in Miron’s offices and on our project sites. For details regarding our current protocols and procedures, please read on.
General Precautions WE ARE SHARING WITH ALL EMPLOYEES
- If employees are feeling sick, especially if they have a fever, flu-like symptoms, or a persistent cough/trouble breathing, we are asking that they do not come to work, but rather stay at home until their symptoms have subsided.

- Wash hands often with soap/water or use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
