Safety & Preparation for COVID-19

Arch Staffing and Consulting is closely monitoring news and information about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

We have worked in our back office operational support in coordination with Sixcel in addition to validating that all our cloud base platforms are updated and functional at any moment.


For all our field offices and home offices, we want to share more information in order to stay healthy and reduce the spread of seasonal flu or the novel coronavirus. The CDC recommends that everyone:


  • Practice good hand hygiene.Wash your hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing, with soap and water. At a minimum, use an alcohol-based hand rub, which may be less effective than soap and water.
  • Practice respiratory etiquette.The main way flu or viruses spread is from person to person in droplets produced by coughs and sneezes, so it’s important to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick.Stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever.
    • If you need clarification on the company sick leave policies and procedures, you may email hr@archstaffing.us or call 760.898.1227
  • Talk to your health care provider about whether you should be vaccinated for the flu.People who want protection from the flu – especially pregnant women or people with underlying health conditions – can be encouraged to get vaccinated, as those vaccines become available. As yet there is not a vaccine for the novel coronavirus.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with others.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as desks, doorknobs, handrails, etc.

  • Stay informed with reliable, up-to-date public health information by calling the respective State Health and Human Services Agency

  • If you are sick, it is important to call ahead before going to see a doctor or an emergency room to prevent the spread of illness. Tell them your symptoms and that you suspect you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 or had recent travel to an area that is experiencing community spread.
