COVID-19 Update For Massachusetts Clients

Governor Charlie Baker has ordered all non-essential businesses to close, effective noon Tuesday, March 24. "Baker said non-essential businesses shall close their physical workplaces and facilities to all workers, customers, and the public."
The governor also stated  "Everyone is advised to stay home and limit all unnecessary activities," while announcing that he and state health officials are issuing a stay at home advisory for the residents of Massachusetts.
Both will remain in effect until April 7.

What does this mean for our clients?
Businesses that provide essential services are exempt. Among the businesses that will remain open are grocery stores and businesses that support them, gas stations, pharmacies and all medical facilities, and manufacturers of medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and restaurants. Governor Baker is expected to release a full list of businesses defined as essential later today.

If your business does not fall under an essential category and you would like to get your office setup for remote working, please email us immediately.

We have resources in place to allow us to continue to provide you with the level of service, responsiveness, and support you have come to expect from IES. We are considered an essential business and are available for you, even with these orders in effect. However, effective Monday, March 23 at 10pm, all IES agents will be working remotely to support our clients and will only be legally allowed to go onsite to provide support if your business falls under an essential category.

As always, we are reachable using any of the following methods:
