Our Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As the situation around the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, our paramount concern has been for the health and safety of our team and to support both our distributors and our partners.

Several weeks ago, Vance & Hines established a task force led by our Human Resources Manager, Maria James to plan for the potential impacts of COVID-19. While this is not an exhaustive list, here are some of the precautions we’re taking across our business. 

Vance & Hines to temporarily close facilities :  

We are temporarily closing our facilities and our Customer Support team is now working remotely, to better serve customers and our communities in response to COVID-19. 

Our Associates: 

We have expanded our paid time off policy to address the needs of hourly associates to help alleviate some of the challenges they may be facing as a result of COVID-19. All hourly full-time associates received an additional 80 hours of paid time off, and part-time hourly associates received an additional 40 hours of paid time off.  

If associates are diagnosed with COVID-19 or advised by health or government officials to self-quarantine due to direct COVID-19 exposure, they’ll continue to be paid during that time. And as always, we’re encouraging associates who are sick to stay home. 

Events: 

We have temporarily postponed several rallies throughout the year until further notice. 

We are facing an unprecedented time, with people around the world feeling the impact of COVID-19. Together, we’ll get through this.
