The novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) sweeping around the world has led to drastic preventative measures to curb fatalities and contain the illness. Last week, Minnesota governor Tim Waltz declared a peacetime state of emergency. Health officials have recommended canceling or postponing all social gatherings. Schools are closed across the state. Restaurants, bars and other venues are shutting down. Social distancing – maintaining a minimum of six feet of separation between individuals – is advised in all situations outside the home. The impact on all levels of society is profound.
Telephone and video conferencing available
Slowing the spread of COVID-19 is a top priority for us at Milavetz Gallop & Milavetz. To that end, we are offering remote services for current and prospective clients through video conferencing and telephone.
Our lawyers and staff take client communication very seriously. We intend to maintain a high level of communication, reaching out by phone or email to keep clients informed of developments in their cases, including any rescheduling of meetings or hearings. We continue to be available by phone or email to address any questions or concerns. We recognize that these are troubling and uncertain times, and we will continue to monitor the situation as it progresses.
Health and safety are our priorities
As a firm, we are committed to taking every step possible to protect the health of our clients and communities – especially those who are most vulnerable, such as seniors and those with weakened immune systems. The measures we take now will help shield them from the devastating toll of this illness. We also stand by those who are on the front lines of battling this unprecedented pandemic, including nurses, physicians and first responders. Our thoughts are with all of those impacted by the pandemic.
