Renaissance Lakewood, LLC Responds to the Global Outbreak of COVID-19
March 24, 2020
As a development and manufacturing partner that supplies pharmaceutical products to many patients and consumers, we are taking decisive action to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our employees, partners, customers and their patients. Currently, our operating facilities remain open and continue to deliver products to our customers and their patients.
To help ensure the safety of our employees and partners, and to protect supply to patients we have taken extensive actions, which are in line with guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). These safety measures include re-emphasizing good hygiene practices to all, restricting visitor access to our sites, eliminating employee business travel, and, wherever possible, employing remote-working strategies.
We continually survey our supply chain in order to identify any potential risk, delay, or concern that may have a substantial effect on the delivery of any product. We have adopted specific procedures to minimize and manage any future disruption to our ongoing operations.
We continue to implement our existing Standard Operating Procedures, consistent with current Good Manufacturing Practices, to ensure the integrity of our supply against any contamination. We have added a detailed response plan to manage any impact of the virus on employee health, site operations and product supply. This includes immediate assessment of the health of employees, supplemental reporting symptoms, comprehensive risk assessment of any impact to quality, additional cleaning protocols and modified shift patterns to compensate should fewer employees be available.
We will notify and consult with our partners should we foresee any impact on supply.
As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Renaissance will continue to put our patients first, and will do everything possible to keep our employees safe and healthy, and to strive to meet the needs and expectations of our customers.
