We’ve always taken seriously the cleanliness of our dealerships and vehicles, and we know this is more important now than ever. We are implementing additional measures to clean and disinfect our dealerships and vehicles, in alignment with guidance from health authorities. This includes routine cleaning with a recommended disinfectant of all frequently touched surfaces at our dealerships, such as counter tops, door handles, kiosks, workstations and bathrooms. We also have a very formal training process in place that instructs all employees about the proper cleaning of vehicles. Of particular focus, our procedures mandate a thorough cleaning and wiping of the interior with a recommended disinfectant. This includes the dashboard, instrument panel, steering column, wheel, accessory panel, center console, cup holders, compartments, seats, between console and seats, between doorjambs and seats, door and door pockets, among other areas. We are reinforcing frequently the importance of this process with our team members.
Employee well-being is also a top priority. We’re encouraging team members to follow health authority best practices like frequent hand washing, as well as asking them to stay home if they are feeling ill.
