Coronavirus Update – June 1, 2021
Reopening the County went into effect Friday, May 28th
Altman & Associates has been following the guidance of the CDC, the State of Maryland, and the County Council of Montgomery County. As of June 1, 2021, over 50% of county residents have been fully vaccinated and capacity and distancing restrictions for indoor and outdoor businesses and venues have been lifted.
95% of the employees at Altman & Associates are vaccinated. Going forward, if you are fully vaccinated, we will no longer require that a mask be worn inside our office, nor will your temperature be taken. It is your decision whether you wish to wear a mask, and should you not have one and wish for one, please ask for a mask at our front desk. If you are uncomfortable with us not wearing masks, at your confirmation appointment, please tell us and we will wear one to accommodate your meeting. This will remain in effect, until there is a change in guidelines.
One Central Plaza, Building Management requires that upon entry to the building a mask must be worn.
Should you not be vaccinated, we will take your temperature and ask that you wear a mask and social distance.
Hand sanitizers will remain throughout the office and so will the plexiglass shield guards. We will continue with our cleaning protocols and offer zoom client meetings. However, the Altman Team all agrees that it is nice to meet all our clients and prospects in person, so we have a more meaningful discussion and engagement.
If you have questions, please call 301-468-3220 and ask to speak to Gary.
We wish everyone an enjoyable, anxiety free summer and look forward to seeing you.
The past year has been a stressful time for all, particularly for those whose health has been impacted by COVID-19. While we’ve all adapted to a certain degree, the uncertainty is still unsettling. Many businesses remain closed, schools are operating via online platforms, and traveling remains challenging, if not impossible.
I have lost two family members during the pandemic. Not being able to gather as we normally do – whether to mourn the passing of a loved one, celebrate a marriage, or simply commiserate with friends, has taken a toll. Now, more than ever, it is important for us all to employ our empathy, kindness, sympathy, patience, and support for one another. We must also believe that things will get better.
During this time, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and let you know that we remain dedicated to serving your estate planning needs. Our team has stepped up to handle the many challenges brought forth by the pandemic. We have adjusted our protocols and taken precautionary measures to ensure we can continue serving you safely and effectively (details below).
We hope that by providing you with this information, it will ease your concerns about coming to our office. As you plan for your appointment, please let us know if we address any specific questions or concerns you may have. The world has changed, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to your success and well being. Please stay safe and healthy. We will see you soon!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at (301) 468-3220.
