As the President of Falcon Express, I thank all of our customers for your continued support of our business. And I want to update you on our pandemic response. Every day brings new developments related to the virus, and our hearts go out to those who have been impacted.   However, at Falcon, we remain optimistic about the future and hope you feel that way too, especially with the rollout of the vaccine.  In the last 60 days, the number of COVID cases in the Mid-Atlantic has surged. With Christmas/New Years travel and gatherings, another spike is anticipated over the next few weeks. In response, the political leaders of local jurisdictions have been tightening restrictions once again to help reverse this trend.  But we remain open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! In fact, the marketplace has shown us consumer buying habits are shifting to mostly online. Therefore, we have enhanced our distribution fleet to accommodate the large increase in e-commerce goods. We have thousands of packages that come in daily for next-day or two -day delivery. Our home delivery division likewise has been built-up to accommodate the increased demand for items such as exercise equipment, TVs, home improvement and appliances.  And as a company, we continue to practice social-distancing when making a delivery, including “no-contact” deliveries, and to follow the advice and directives of the CDC and our political leaders.  Many of our staff continue to telework. Those that do come to our facilities are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPEs), such as masks and gloves. We have made modifications to our offices to increase space between associates and hung screens to mitigate the spread of the virus. We require our driver to “mask-up” while making deliveries.  But again, we are optimistic! With the introduction of the vaccine, we expect to see life get back to normal soon!  Finally, we at Falcon Express wish everyone a joyous and prosperous New Year! And at the same time, please be safe!
