COVID-19 Operational Update

We provided you with an update last week and a reminder that Boenning & Scattergood remains open for business during this situation related to COVID-19. In the event you need to reach any Boenning & Scattergood representative, you can continue to reach them via the typical methods of communication (email or phone). As a reminder, our main contact information can be found here: http://www.boenninginc.com/contact/!

Consistent with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are asking any client with appointments to postpone any in-person meetings, and to conduct business, if you can, via telephone or virtually.

As a reminder, the CDC recommends the following steps to prevent sickness. We are following these with our employees, and we encourage you to do the same at home:
– Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
– Stay home when you are sick.
– Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
– Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
– Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
