Given the widespread impact of the unfolding Coronavirus pandemic, we understand that our customers may be concerned about Elkay’s operational status and have questions related to the care & cleaning of our drinking water products.
All US Elkay production plants & distribution facilities remain open and are currently operating at normal production capacities. Although several states in which Elkay operates manufacturing plants and distribution centers have enacted “stay-at-home" orders, as a critical supplier to hardware and supply stores, plumbing wholesale business and other customers who provide our products to healthcare, construction, foodservice and other critically important industries, Elkay is considered an “Essential Business and Operation” and are encouraged to remain open under those states’ orders.
Elkay is committed to protecting the health of our employees as we continue operations and has developed a plan to enhance sanitation in each location, while also enforcing social distancing protocols.
We currently are not experiencing any major supply shortages at any of our operations.
Care and Cleaning
We suggest that you continue to monitor the CDC’s website for the most recent information related to methods and materials to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
For Elkay drinking water products, follow the cleaning directions outlined in the instructions provided with your product or visit our website for more information. If you choose to use a disinfectant, use only the following products:
- Virox Technologies, Inc. PREempt Wipes
- Clorox Commercial Solutions® Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfecting Wipes
- Clorox Healthcare® Disinfectant Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Wipes
Once you have used any disinfectant on an Elkay drinking water product, it must be thoroughly wiped dry with a water-dampened clean cloth after the specified disinfectant contact time as indicated on the disinfectant product.
If your facility had an extended closure caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19), your Elkay drinking water products may have remained unused for 4-6 weeks or longer. This could lead to stagnant water residing within the building plumbing or the product itself. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recommendations noted in, Maintaining or Restoring Water Quality in Buildings With Low or No Use, stagnation introduces the possibility for bacteria growth within the water supply, rendering it potentially unsafe for users. Prior to reopening, Elkay recommends following these guidelines.
COVID-19 Funding Opportunity for Schools
CARES Act - Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund
CARES Act ESSER funding can help K-12 schools maintain cleaner, healthier environments during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is the Cares Act ESSER Fund?
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The purpose of the CARES Act is to provide states with funding to prevent, prepare for and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund is the portion of the CARES Act that awards grants to State educational agencies (SEAs) for the purpose of providing local educational agencies (LEAs) with emergency funds to address the impact of the coronavirus.
