At MPT-INTL, our customers and our employees have always been our priority, and remain so more than ever during this period of uncertainty. As you know, a worldwide state of health emergency has been declared. The Prime Minister of Quebec, François Legault, reiterated the recommendation that special attention should be paid to the elderly, especially those aged 70 and over, as they are at greater risk of complications. Visits to hospitals and long-term care facilities, accommodation centers, intermediate resources, family-type resources, and private residences are prohibited.
It is in the spirit of protecting our elderly but also to do our duty as citizens by avoiding non-essential travel that we have decided to suspend all deliveries for a period of 2 weeks, from March 16th to March 31st. We will follow guidance and best practices from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Word Health Organization and of all government recommendations, and will extend this period if necessary. We are aware that this situation is special, we are determined to support you throughout this period with a personalized approach. Our team is available to answer your questions. Please let us know of any concerns that you may have.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will update our website and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/mptinternational as developments occur. Please be assured that MPT is working diligently every day to ensure continuity of production and accessible information, so that we can serve you better. In addition, we are monitoring the situation very closely each day and will make every effort to adapt our business practices. By adhering to government guidelines, we are committed to providing the best possible conditions to ensure the health and safety of our customers and employees: this is our priority.
Thank you for your comprehension,
