State and local authorities made announcements yesterday affecting the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, and the State of California, as multiple government agencies move to respond to concerns around the Coronavirus. We are hearing that other states have followed similar protocols. After reviewing the documents disseminated for California, by each of the jurisdictions, we’ve determined that our operations are exempt from the restrictions, as they fall into the categories that support Essential Business and Essential Infrastructure. We are currently still in operation in support of our employees and our customers as we all strive to get through this situation together.
All of our partners that are working from home at this time have continued to make quote requests, advance schedule projects, book essential work now and discuss existing projects. We have remote design, commissioning, and programming taking place and are continuing to administrate the company. MediaCentric is still up and running and will be ready for when this unprecedented event subsides whether quickly or gradually.
Please reach out to our team through all of our normal channels with any quote requests, scheduling, questions or concerns as we move through this trying time. We are committed to the partnerships we’ve built in over 20 years in business, and we’re eager to keep working with all of our valued customers and employees as we move forward.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
David J Lopez
Current locations of MediaCentric:
