SINT MAARTEN (COLE BAY) – This week, USLAUNDRY collaborated with White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation on a COVID-19 vaccine information session for all its employees, USLAUNDRY said in a media statement on Thursday.
USLAUNDRY is an industrial laundry that serves the hospitality and health care industry on Sint Maarten for over 25 years.
The company considers it very important to have all its staff members vaccinated against COVID-19. USLAUNDRY wanted to have its employees make a well-founded decision by having the WYC experts share facts regarding the pandemic, available vaccines and debunk myths from the internet in the process.
In effort of making sure all team members are well informed Bregje Boetekees, Director of White & Yellow Cross, visited the laundry to provide the information. From the point of view of the company, empowering everybody to get the COVID-19 vaccine avoids not only employees getting seriously ill but also helps to protect those around them.
Moreover, the company hopes that herd immunity will contribute to the tourism comeback of the island. Amongst others, USLAUNDRY is an important supplier for many hotels and tourism players on the island.
The two-hour workshop answered may questions and took away doubt from various employees. Registration forms in English, Spanish and Creole were given out after the meeting to be able to register for the vaccine right away.
USLAUNDRY is grateful for the assistance of White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation of providing instruments for a successful comeback of the island.
