American Fidelity Supports Education and Healthcare Heroes

Thursday, December 17, 2020

Our schools and hospitals are full of people who have dedicated their lives to helping others. Now it’s time for us to help them.

As a community, it’s important for us to pull together and do our part to keep our education and healthcare heroes healthy and safe. #COVIDDoesntRest and it will take time to get the vaccine to everyone. In the meantime, we can do our part to ensure we can get back to normal, get children back in school and relieve the strain on our healthcare system.

“This holiday season, the best gift we can give our community is stay healthy so we can support our education and healthcare communities,” says Jeanette Rice, American Fidelity president and COO. “I wear a mask, social distance and encourage others to do so as well.”

Three simple actions can help us eliminate this virus and end the pandemic:

  1. Wear a mask.
  2. Wash your hands.
  3. Watch your distance.

At American Fidelity, we’re also taking additional precautions to protect our Colleagues and help stop community spread.

  • Approximately 90% of Colleagues work from home each day
  • Colleagues complete a COVID-19 survey before entering the building
  • Anyone entering the building has their temperature checked
  • Masks are worn when around other Colleagues
  • Social distancing of at least six feet is required
  • Extensive cleaning practices are in place
  • Regular updates and guidance from our medical director

Learn more about how you can do your part to support our community heroes through the Oklahoma City-County Health Department.
