An update on COVID-19 from our Global CEO Brian Hannasch
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, I want to update you on the important steps we are taking at Circle K to protect our customers and employees.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, I want to update you on the important steps we are taking at Circle K to protect our customers and employees. More than ever, we are committed to being part of the solution for the communities where we work and live. Our key priority remains the health and safety of our employees and customers.
In many areas where we operate, our stores are now designated as part of the critical emergency infrastructure, and we are staying open and true to our mission of making our customer’s lives a little easier every day – even difficult days.
Our store employees are on the front-line of this crisis, and we have put together additional financial and healthcare measures to support them. We have also done much work to increase even further the safety at our locations including:
- Stringent cleaning measures several times daily anywhere hands may go from surfaces, screens, pumps, toilets and more.
- Increasing safety, hygiene, and packaging around food and beverages
- Installing clear barriers at cash registers to protect customers and employees from coughs, sneezes or other possible exposure
- Marking stores for social distancing at the checkout line
We are also providing answers to frequently asked questions about our how our stores are operating during these unprecedented times and what our customers can expect in terms of store closing and sanitizing procedures if an employee is diagnosed with COVID-19. You can find those on our websites and in social media. We will continue to create impactful solutions that help our customers safely get the products they need.
Finally, we are doing our part to say thank you to those working day and night to combat the virus. Along with offering free coffee, tea, and polar pop to our frontline store employees, we are also giving it free to first responders and health care workers*.
You can rely on Circle K to help get through this together!
