March 25, 2020

Destin, FL – Wednesday, March 25, 2020 – As today’s news is being dominated by the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Tuffy is continuing to take proactive measures and safeguards to ensure customer health and safety is our top priority.  While the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring the situation and the risk to the American public, Tuffy has been taking these precautions to ensure customer health and safety is secured.  

·       The use of CDC approved disinfectants on all surfaces and commonly used areas as often as possible not only within all Tuffy facilities but within all customer vehicle touch points as well.   

·       The use of steering wheel covers, floor mats, and seat covers within all customer vehicles.

·       Enhanced cleaning following the return of all loaner and customer shuttle service vehicles.

·       Being vigilant on frequent hand washing both before and after the service of each customer’s vehicle with CDC approved soap/sanitizer. 

·       In addition, Tuffy is taking steps to ensure the welfare of all employees. This includes instructing employees who feel ill to stay home and consult their healthcare providers. 

Having concerns about public interactions is normal given the current status of COVID-19.  For more information as it relates to COVID-19, please visit the CDC website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
