At Farallon, the health and safety of our colleagues, their families, and our clients are top of mind amid concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). In response to COVID-19, we want to share information with you about how Farallon will continue to operate safely and effectively.

Standard precautionary measures provided by the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a variety of other state and local governments sources are being followed. Farallon is committed to continue to do our best to work our projects. Achieving project goals in the time frame communicated to our team members remains a priority. Farallon is following the practices below: 

  • We are properly equipped and prepared as our employees transition to working from home. Please be assured that working remotely is common within our firm. We have various resources to coordinate meetings and conference calls to maintain the flow of project communications internally and externally.
  • Our fieldwork is often performed outdoors with limited contact with other people. Farallon is integrating current health and safety practices regarding the COVID-19 virus into our safety protocols and will continue to conduct fieldwork that can be completed in a manner that complies with federal, state, and local policies as they evolve.  
  • We have instituted social distancing protocols for our entire company as outlined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local government policies.  

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We are happy to address any questions or concerns. 

Be well and stay healthy.
