Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Drewlo Holdings has decided to shut down all non-essential operations. This decision was not made lightly, however as a responsible corporate citizen we must do the right thing and assist in helping flatten the curve. We feel this is the best decision to protect the health and safety of our staff, residents, and community. If you have questions or concerns, email comments@drewloholdings.com

Housing is an essential service and we will continue to rent units. If you are looking for an apartment, email rental@drewloholdings.com

As we have seen in the media, concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 continue to escalate. We want you to know that we are also taking steps to prepare for potential impacts to our business. Our goal is for everyone to remain calm and informed, which is why we are doing our best to proactively address areas of concern. For the most part, we are taking direction from our local Health Units, Health Canada and the World Health Organization, but we are also adopting our own measures where necessary.

Here's what we are doing:

• Amenities & Common Areas. Effective Immediately all amenities and common areas will be closed.

• Sanitization Practices. Implementing additional and frequency of our sanitization practices in all our workplaces and buildings.

• Staying Informed. Continue to monitor local health units for the most up to date information on the virus. We want to provide you with helpful information to keep yourself and your family safe. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. How to protect yourself and your family:

• Stay home when you are sick.

• Wash your hands with soap and warm water often, for at least 20 seconds (Need a timer? Hum "Happy Birthday" from beginning to end twice). If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Cover coughs and sneezes with your sleeve; or cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the garbage.

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

• Avoid gathers in large groups.

• Avoid handshakes.

• Clean and disinfect high-touch objects and surfaces frequently.
