Coronavirus Update: Blue & Co. Operations

As the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we wanted to let you, our valued clients and friends of the firm, know that Blue & Co. is actively monitoring the situation, along with our business communities. As such, the health and safety of our team, clients, and the friends of our firm is our number one priority.

I have been fortunate to work at Blue for almost 33 years, and I have been so impressed with the compassion that our entire team exhibits. Our values of being responsive, caring, and advocates are visible every day. I appreciate all of your understanding as we work through these unprecedented events.

With health and safety as a priority, we are adjusting our operations to accommodate the following:

1. Blue & Co. Offices will be closed to the public, and our employees will be encouraged to work remotely if able. Those who cannot work remotely will be encouraged to practice social distancing and hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our local health authorities.

2. Clients bringing information to the office for tax returns will be received at the front desk, and all client and business-related essential mail will be opened, processed, scanned, and securely distributed to the applicable Blue & Co. team members working remotely for use.

3. On-site client work engagements (like audits) will be adjusted to be performed remotely until further notice.

4. All external meetings will be moved to digital methods (via conference or video calls) unless precautions can be taken, such as social distancing, until further notice.

We will continue to update you via email when applicable and our website (www.blueandco.com/covid-19) on firm operations and updates related to COVID-19 legislation as it emerges.

We are committed to continuing to serve our clients with exceptional service and thank you for working with us during this unprecedented time of change. We stand ready to help as you also work through these uncertain times.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Stay healthy everybody!
