Sylva's Response to COVID-19
Dear Valued Customer
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who's been impacted by the COVID-19 virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts and prayers are especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery. We're truly inspired by the selfless healthcare workers around the world who are on the front lines working tirelessly to care for people in need.
Sylva Corporation, Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor supplying wood products in the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa & Wisconsin. Certain industries have been designated “Food and Agriculture” under the Department of Homeland Security’s emergency readiness programs. The United States Federal government accordingly considers segments of industries to be essential in maintaining Critical Essential production.
The definition of Critical Infrastructure workers comes from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cyber & Infrastructure memo titled “Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce: Ensuring Community and National Resilience in COVID-19 Response Version 1.1 (March 23, 2020)”. The operations of Sylva Corporation, Inc. fall under the following Critical Sector Worker Exemption:
FOOD AND AGRICULTURE
Workers who support the manufacture and distribution of forest products,
including, but not limited to timber, paper, and other wood products.
We intend to remain open and operational, in full compliance with State and Federal law
and/or mandates, in the event of any curfews, shelter-in-place orders, and/or
other mobility restrictions, so that Sylva Corporation Inc. can continue to ensure
Critical Manufacturing production and supply during this public health emergency.
We are currently taking orders and shipping bagged and bulk mulches! Additionally,
we are offering 60 day terms to customers with accounts in good standing
for orders delivered by the end of April.
Wishing you the very best,
The Sylva Team
