With the continual presence of COVID-19 in our daily lives, everyone has been impacted and we all have been asked to face these new challenges together. From our family at Edge to yours, we want you to know that we are here for you.
Pest control has officially been deemed an essential service by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
In the past, during times of great trial, our nation's leaders have asked American businesses to sacrifice and bear the same burdens as the people. Non-essential businesses temporarily close or adapt for the greater good and the betterment of all. Those that are pivotal to sustaining public health remain on alert and operational for the good of the population and are critical to the infrastructure of our communities. With that in mind, it is our duty to inform you that pest control has officially been deemed an essential service by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as well as by many other local and state governments.
We will continue to do our part
History has shown that societies that overlook pest control place themselves in great danger. Scientists and historians have attributed the spread of diseases like the Black Plague to lack of sanitation and pest control. As your partner and as defenders of public health, we will continue to do our part by providing the highest quality pest control service while practicing the recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).
We strongly urge you to do your part in "flattening the curve" of COVID-19.
As an Essential Service, Edge will continue to serve and uplift our local communities during this uncertain time. Below you can find steps we are taking in the name of safety within the company and for your family.
