Farmers Coop Society supports our health officials and our government leaders as we all work together to try to contain the coronavirus. FCS is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for protecting against COVID-19.

FCS has proactively implemented some new procedures that are intended to minimize risk to our employees and our customers. It is important for us to maintain a safe workspace for our employees as well as being able to continue to serve our customers. Steps we have taken include the following:
- We have cancelled company and external meetings and events at this time.
- We are asking all truck drivers to stay in their trucks when loading, unloading and weighing in and out of our facilities.
- We have increased cleaning and sanitation supplies and are encouraging employees to take time to clean and wash their hands regularly.
- We are restricting employee's movements between our locations
As your local cooperative we understand that business must go on; however, we are trying to limit interaction so that we can ensure continued support to all of our customers. Therefore, we ask that you conduct as much business as possible over the phone or by email for the next several weeks.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you updated as things change. Stay safe, we will get through this working together.
