The health and public safety of our employees, stakeholders, and consumers is our first priority. Amid the increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19, Wolverine Pipe Line Company continues to take the necessary steps to prevent the spread of the virus. We are doing this while also recognizing that we have a special responsibility to provide necessary services to protect the public.
The U.S. President has ordered that all critical infrastructure industries continue to maintain normal work structures and procedures to continue to protect the public and provide critical services. On March 19th, 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, through its Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, identified “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” to include workers for petroleum pipeline companies.
Wolverine Pipe Line Company is responsible for the transportation of gasoline and diesel fuel throughout the states of Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. This includes maintaining the pipeline, excavating as necessary, and monitoring the pipeline system through our operations control center. These services are included as critical infrastructure needs under the President’s most recent guidelines, and reiterated in the Executive Orders issued by the governors of Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana, respectively. We have not experienced or expect there to be changes or delays in our business operations.
We take our job seriously and like many other companies, Wolverine Pipe Line Company is taking guidance from the CDC to ensure we are doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes the following actions:
- Washing hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds.
- Avoiding touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Covering mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoiding contact with people who are sick.
- Staying home if you are sick and contact your healthcare provider.
- Maintaining a safe and healthy social distance of no less than six feet.
We encourage everyone to join us in taking the necessary steps to protect themselves, their families, and their neighbors.
