The COVID-19 Pandemic has arguably become the main topic of conversation for most people and a concern for both individuals and businesses.  In order to benefit the overall physical and fiscal health of our community, at the global and local levels, Kriens-LaRose is contributing our efforts in reducing spread of this virus.  Specifically, we are taking the following steps: 

  • The Kriens-LaRose Assurance Team are continuing to work from home.  Each employee has been supplied with the necessary equipment to stay in contact with the firm partners and with clients in order to address any questions or concerns and to continue working to meet client deadlines. 
  • The Kriens-LaRose Tax Team has returned to the office, and staff are required to take the following precautionary measures at all times to minimize their risk of infection: undergo daily temperature checks, wear face masks, follow hand-washing protocols and practice physical distancing.
  • We are expanding our regular office-cleaning practices, with a focus on frequent disinfection of common areas and items, including but not limited to, boardroom, meeting rooms & restrooms, doorknobs, light switches, stair railings, phones, keyboards etc.
  • We have cancelled all in-person client visits to our office however, we will accept packages dropped off through our mail slot or on the porch (with a quick ring of the bell to advise us thereof).  We are accepting, as always, mail or courier delivery of your files, and/or we are happy to accommodate the electronic transfer of your data via email and our online secure portal (for confidential documentation and large files).  Although the partners and staff are not scheduling any in-person meetings until further notice, they are happy to address any questions or concerns via phone, email or web-meetings as needed.
  • Any third party vendors or service staff whose presence at the office is deemed essential to our ability to maintain operation are required to have their temperature taken prior at the start of their appointment, and must complete a COVID-19 questionnaire to confirm they are following safety protocols so as to not put our staff or client at risk.
  • If a member of Kriens-LaRose a) learns they have been exposed to a person who has tested positive for the Coronavirus, or b) are themselves experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, the expectation is that they would remain in self-isolation and confer with their health care provider, public health care officer.  Kriens-LaRose commits to upholding our policy of fair and non-discriminatory treatment and maintaining the privacy of any such employee.

Despite the challenges this virus/illness presents for the days and months ahead, Kriens-LaRose is optimistic that by proactively addressing the means by which the Coronavirus is being transmitted, we can help to slow and eventually stop the progression of this disease.  We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and adjust our firm policies and practices as necessary.
