To Our Boenning & Scattergood Clients:
We understand that, due to the novel COVID-19 virus, we are all encountering and coping with many difficult circumstances. As we have communicated previously, the Firm has been monitoring the ever-changing situation and taking precautionary steps pursuant to CDC guidelines. We are doing what we can to help stop the spread of the virus1.
The Governor of Pennsylvania has mandated that all but “life-sustaining businesses” in the Commonwealth close their physical locations, effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 8pm. To read the press release and Gov. Wolf’s official order, click here.
This implicates Boenning & Scattergood’s corporate headquarters, as well as several branch offices. And so, we are immediately undertaking to comply with this mandate. Effective at 8:00pm on Thursday, March 19, 2020, our Berwyn, Lancaster, Newtown, Pittsburgh, and Pottstown branches—as well as our Headquarters in West Conshohocken—will be closed until further notice.
We assure you that, despite closing some of our offices, we remain fully operational and available to you. For our affected Pennsylvania locations, we have implemented our Business Continuity Plan (BCP). All our employees are continuing to work remotely and remain reachable via phone and email, just as if they were physically in their offices. When the markets are open, so are we, no matter where we are!
Our employees are focused and dedicated to working with you and your accounts, despite the uncharted terrain into which we venture together. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns; we are here for you. Boenning is open and ready to do business!
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we all make sense of a new situation—at home, at work, and around the world. Stay safe and healthy; we’ll stay by your side.
