To our Associates, Vendors, and Customers

During these difficult and uncertain times, we want to assure our associates, their families, our clients, and our vendors that their safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to us. While COVID-19 has brought significant changes to our lives – Modernistic is making changes to adjust accordingly to continue to provide services to our customers while protecting the health and safety of our associates. We are hard at work and we will continue to remain operational.

On Wednesday, March 25th, an Executive Order by Governor Walz was issued directing all Minnesota residents to stay at home or at their place of residence and mandating the closing of all nonessential businesses.  Modernistic falls within the definition of an essential business [or supplier of an essential business] as defined in the Executive Order, and our team is fully committed to remaining open during this time.

The safety of our associates is our first priority.  Where possible, associates who can work remotely are required to do so.  All non-essential travel has been discontinued.  For associates working on site, all steps are being taken to ensure that sanitizing and disinfecting procedures are taking place prior to work, during the day, and at the end of each shift.  Social distancing is implemented where able.  When unable, appropriate PPE is in use along with enhanced cleaning protocols.  Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the facility and proper hygiene steps are expected.  

We will continue to monitor the health of all our associates and require those with possible symptoms of COVID-19 to self-quarantine at home until non-symptomatic for a period of 72 hours without use of any fever reducers, cough suppressants, etc.

We are committed to remaining fully operational during this challenging time and ensuring service levels to our customers are not compromised.  You can reach out to us through, via email or by calling us at 800-736-1798. 

We are proud to be part of the working part of the economy and consider it part of our American duty to help keep things running!
