COVID-19 Update June 22, 2020

One of the rising concerns among business owners in the process of re-opening is the risk of being sued for negligence in preparation and/or ongoing protective duties against COVID-19. Louisiana Governor, J.B. Edwards signed a bill into effect last week to shield companies from the liability of a patron with Covid-19 related injuries or deaths. Our safety team is ready to assist if you have any questions or want to make sure you’re covered.

We are hosting an informational webinar this Thursday, June 25th at 3 PM CST covering the following: latest updates to the PPP loan program; Delta technology review and training for pay changes, terminations, & benefits onboarding; going paperless; and hurricane preparedness. Although Delta’s webinars are meant to be quick and informative, we are happy to pause for questions when necessary. They normally last around 30-40 minutes – again please register here.
