Managing and Reducing COVID-19 Risk
December 1, 2020
To Our Clients and Friends:
We all continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in Houston, across the United States, and globally. In light of guidance from state and local authorities, as well as from Hines Property Management (which oversees our physical space and associated common areas), we have established work-from-home arrangements among our lawyers and staff. As a law firm, we do have the need for onsite work but we limit the presence of people on our premises wherever possible. We continue to comply with the Harris County Face Covering Order and Hines limits elevator usage to two occupants per elevator at a time with proper PPE (masks and gloves). Specifically, we follow Hines’s “Preparing Your Workplace” Tenant Checklist.
Since our last update of September 15, Houston and Harris County have experienced an increase, a decrease, and now another increase, in cases. Throughout the pandemic, Harris County has adopted a color-coded COVID-19 Threat Level System. For the past several weeks, our firm has followed the guidance reflected in the new system’s “Level 1” classification: “Stay Home” – minimizing contacts with others whenever possible.
We remain committed to delivering exceptional service and will continue to operate at full capacity. We are working and we are available for you. Our longstanding commitment to first-in-class technology and collaborative methods have allowed us to continue to provide uninterrupted and high-quality service to our clients.
