McCown & Evans Response to COVID-19
|Dear Clients and Friends,
As a valued client of McCown & Evans, we appreciate the trust you place in us, our people, and our services. Over the past 17 years, McCown & Evans has continued to support our clients despite earthquakes, wildfires, and other natural disasters. You can rest assured we are prepared and that we have contingency plans in place to deal with the range of potential issues that may arise from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
During the period of the San Francisco Bay Area’s mandatory Shelter in Place order (in place until at least April 7), all McCown & Evans team members are working remotely from their homes. As we are already a paperless office with a cloud-based technology infrastructure, we should be able to continue with the majority of our work-related tasks without interruption. At the present time, delivery services such as Federal Express are still operational, as are the USCIS Service Centers where the majority of immigration petitions are filed. So we are prepared to continue to file paper applications and petitions that the U.S. government requires in most cases.
We continue to closely monitor and adhere to recommended practices around the COVID-19 pandemic from the CDC, the World Health Organization, and local leaders. Our priority is continuing to provide the excellent service you have come to expect, while also taking care of our team members. We appreciate your enduring commitment to us, and we, in turn, are prepared to continue our commitments to you.
In response to the recent outbreaks in the United States, and California in particular, we are taking the following precautions:
Thank you for continuing to entrust us with your immigration needs. We wish for you, your families, and your colleagues to remain healthy and safe.
