COVID-19 Update from Parkway Lawn Service
Here is our update on how Parkway Lawn Service is handling the Covid-19 situation.
We are planning on starting our 2020 season on April 10th unless the Governor extends the stay-at-home order. This puts us a good week behind our normal schedule and should not be a big problem, but, if the Governor extends stay at home orders and the lawn maintenance industry is not granted exclusion, well, that will make things interesting.
In order to keep our work force strong and ready for action all employees are being paid 30 plus hours per week and at this point are not required to draw down on any paid time off they have accumulated.
In order to keep our employees and customers safe and healthy the following safety measures have been taught to all employees and will be in place when we resume operations.
- Staggered start times to keep the number of employees around the shop yard to a minimum.
- One employee per vehicle whenever possible. Some employees will ride in their personal vehicles
- If employees must ride together they both will be required to wear face masks.
- Cough and sneeze etiquette.
- Hand washing/hygiene.
- 6 feet distance from one another.
- Not coming to work when you’re sick or have a fever (we will be screening employees for signs of fever).
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid sharing personal items with others.
- Providing tissue, paper towels and hand sanitizer.
- Cleaning of work areas that get touched.
- Disinfect/clean the cab of the trucks every day.
The best way to communicate with us as we run office operations from our homes is email.

Stay safe and healthy!
