Associates in every region have been touched by this pandemic, and I know many are worried about your health, and the health of your loved ones. Some of you are worrying about the production shut down of factory where you were working, or spending stressful
days in unusual and uncertain situation. I want to extend sympathy to all who have lost someone to COVID-19 or who have a loved one who is sick. I hope you are taking good care of yourselves. That is most important.
