Fortunately, AE Partner’s main operation in Latvia is so far not affected by the spread of the Coronavirus, as very few and so far, only imported cases are registered in the country.
Therefore, it’s functioning as usual, and we can produce all incoming orders as before.
As for our suppliers, we are daily monitoring the situation and have placed extra orders on items where lead time has been affected. So far, no major disruptions are seen.
But given the recent increase in infections rates in Denmark, the measures announced yesterday by the Danish government and the low infection rate in Latvia we have decided to introduce the following interim measures:
1. Travel ban for visitors to Latvia – this applies to AE Partner’s employees, suppliers, and customers. If required, any urgent tests should be held in the Danish office in Ry
2. AE Partner’s employees in Denmark, as far as possible, work from home, attend internal & external meetings via MS Teams / Skype.
3. We will keep the Danish office open and are still able to both send and receive goods
The stated measures will be applicable for the next two weeks but can be extended if the situation will not improve.
