Since the start of the pandemic our focus has been on the safety of our employees, customers, partners and communities, while continuing to run our business and support our customers. We continue to see an increasing number of our customers and partners implementing vaccine mandates for those working within their facilities, including our employees. More than 1000 of our customers in the US are currently requiring vaccination from their suppliers, with this number increasing every day. The US Federal government is one of BSNA's largest customers and the Federal government recently issued multiple vaccination requirements that directly impact our company. A cross-functional team worked diligently to sift through the complexities of those requirements and determined the best solution with both our employees and our customers in mind. The team developed a site classification model to manage the Federal requirements, and area and local leadership teams determined site classifications based on Federal work, capacity needs, customer requirements, market conditions, etc. As a result of that review, management has determined that this role now requires candidates to be vaccinated in order to meet our Federal government and/or customer obligations.
