While the global pandemic is posing challenges to our daily lives in many ways, Puragen remains dedicated to serving our customers, who provide essential goods and services in this great time of need.

Puragen continues to operate its Emlenton, Pennsylvania facility in order to provide solutions for our customers. We have changed our daily operations in accordance with guidance from the CDC, requiring our employees to practice social distancing if they feel well and to remain home if they don't, and for the manufacturing facility to operate with safe space distancing alongside the provision of hand sanitizers and sanitizing wipes.

We wanted to provide some further information about why we remain open in light of Governor Tom Wolf's recent announcement that only life-sustaining businesses are to remain open. His announcement came with a list of the industries that are considered life sustaining, and Puragen Emlenton operations qualify as a life sustaining business based on at least two definitions. First, beverage manufacturing is exempt and second, basic chemical manufacturing is exempt. Our products produced at Emlenton are critical to both the ongoing provision of purified water and the manufacture of respirators. Our customers are food and beverage makers, medical facilities, water and sewage utilities, and so many more.

Today, March 23, we received confirmation from the State of Pennsylvania that our business "plays a critical role in the manufacture and supply of goods and services necessary to sustain life, and may continue to operate."

Nothing is more important to us than our community, our customers, and our employees, so we are heeding all regulations and recommendations in order to slow the spread of this global pandemic.

As we provide a necessary service to sustaining our society, we will continue to remain open and don't foresee any interruptions in service, barring extreme changes. We will continue to give updates as the ongoing situation emerges.
