As many states, including Illinois where Clarke is headquartered, enact Shelter-in-Place mandates to combat the continued spread of COVID-19, only essential businesses are allowed to continue operations. The good news is, public health mosquito abatement is considered an essential service under the Department of Homeland Security guidelines.
Both aspects of Clarke’s business: mosquito control products and mosquito control services, are fully operational at this time.
The Centers of Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture all concur – mosquito management is of significant public health importance.
Clarke is doing what it takes to provide our customers with uninterrupted supply and service as the entire world works to suppress the Covid-19 virus impact. We’re absolutely adjusting our staffing, operations and service delivery methods to add greater levels of protection for our people and our customers, but do remain open for business.
We are here to assist you through this public health emergency. Please let us know how we can help you.
