As we navigate these uncertain times, we wanted to share the most up-to-date information regarding our Sandpoint Junction Connector project. Above all else, at BNSF Railway, the safety of our employees and contractors, customers and the communities we serve is the most important thing we do. We are taking the necessary precautions to protect their health and safety as well as ensure that our operations are not impacted from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In response, we are following the guidance and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health agencies. Our Medical team continues to closely monitor the situation on any additional measures that should be implemented. You can learn more about our efforts here: https://www.bnsf.com/coronavirus-response.page.
Our team is continuing work at the Sandpoint Junction Connector job site, following guidance as outlined by the CDC, which includes adhering to social distancing practices, smaller safety briefings and enhanced protocols for facility and equipment cleaning. Also, the Department of Homeland Security issued the attached guidance regarding essential critical infrastructure workers, including railroad workers.
