The new world’s reality is marked by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has reached virtually every sector of society. As a real concern, companies from all industries are presenting action plans and measures to confront the crisis. Liberty Health Sciences (CNQ: LHS) has given an update for its current response to the coronavirus, as well as a progress report for its core business.
To reduce exposure to coronavirus and other health risks, LHS is following guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), designed to protect and ensure the wellbeing of its patients, customers and employees. Its operations are still open during regular business hours to serve the thousands of patients that rely on their products for good life quality. Each location is following the strictest sanitation measures, including scheduled cleaning at the top of every hour and the addition of digital thermometer scanners in every store. All staff will conduct periodically temperature readings and will be wearing masks, gloves, and sanitizers constantly.
As Florida has designated cannabis dispensaries as “essential business,” LHS has been experiencing increased demand in its products – around 82% growth month-over-month in both delivery and sales. The company has used this time to improve its processes to make offerings more conveniently accessible, for instance, easy online ordering, text message notifications, free delivery for orders over $50, curbside pickup and extended delivery beyond store operations, even on weekends.
LHS CEO Victor Mancebo , said, “We continue to monitor the developments surrounding COVID-19 and have placed unprecedented emphasis on our cleaning procedures across the entire company, including our cultivation facilities. As we all continue to practice safe social distancing, you can trust that we will continue to provide our patients across the state consistent, reliable access to all of our products while adhering to guidelines of health advisories and local authorities to do the best we can to keep our patients and their loved ones safe.”
