We hope that you are well. Your safety and well-being is of paramount concern to us. In an effort to keep our clients and our staff healthy, we are taking measures to practice social distancing and reduce the possibility of spreading the coronavirus. To help achieve those measures, we are performing the following activities:
We are diligently cleaning our offices in Bradenton, Clearwater and Tampa and are continuing good hygiene as recommended by the CDC and the Florida Health Department.
We are requiring staff who do not feel well to remain at home and self-quarantine.
We are rescheduling office appointments to be completed by telephone or video-conferencing. We will provide a link via email to a client before the meeting of which app or video-conferencing website to use.
New consultations will also be completed by telephone or video-conferencing, whenever possible.
We may be transitioning a portion of our staff to work from home. This should not directly impact our clients, but as change and delays may be unavoidable, we ask for everyone’s patience while we work through this vital time.
Clients who are required to come to one of our offices, sign paperwork or submit documents are asked to do the following:
Notify our staff by phone before coming to the office if you are feeling unwell, if you’ve traveled outside of the United States in the last 14 days, or if you’ve been around someone who is suspected of having the coronavirus. We will work with you to find an alternative plan.
We ask that you practice social distancing in the office. Limit the number of people who attend an appointment and try to avoid sitting near others.
If a document is being handed to or from our staff, we ask that you use hand sanitizer before and after the exchange. We will provide disposable pens that you can keep.
As you may already know the offices of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have issued their own plan to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. They are rescheduling appointments without penalty for individuals who are feeling unwell, have traveled or been exposed to the virus in any way. It is important to communicate with the USCIS to reschedule so that there is a record of this action. They, too, want to maintain the health and well-being of everyone, and these plans will make a difference.
We know that we can work together to slow the spread of this virus. We understand that there may be concerns and we are happy to answer your questions. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office and we will reply as quickly as possible.
