Coronavirus Risk at Fergus Falls, MN and Wahpeton, ND Locations
WEST FARGO, N.D., April 16, 2020
Titan Machinery has had an employee test positive for COVID-19. That employee is following all medical advice and state health department guidelines, and
is quarantining at home. Two employees at our Fergus Falls, MN location and two at our Wahpeton, ND location have been identified as having close contact with the employee who tested positive, and they are also following state health department guidelines
and quarantining at home.
Employees at both stores were informed of the positive test result and sent home on Wednesday, April 15th. A professional cleaning company is on site at both locations today, April 16th, cleaning and disinfecting all possibly
affected areas. Titan management will inform store employees when the stores have been fully sanitized and it is safe to return to work.
All Titan Machinery locations are diligently following CDC and state health department guidelines to help reduce the
spread of coronavirus. Titan's COVID-19 Task Force is continually monitoring the coronavirus situation across Titan's footprint, staying current with applicable federal, state and local guidelines and directives, and communicating frequently with employees
to educate and inform on actions to take to remain healthy and keep our stores and communities safe.
This includes a directive by CEO, David Meyer, that Titan stores will not be open to public access, effective March 23rd. Each store remains fully staffed
(remotely, where appropriate) with parts, service, precision, rental and sales professionals who are continuing to meet customer needs via telephone, the Internet, and no/low-touch delivery of parts and equipment. Due to the active and ongoing safety
measures at each location, close contact to the employee who has tested positive has been very limited, and we do not believe that there has been any close contact with customers.
