The Forbes M+A Group COVID-19 Update

As we work as a community to mitigate the spread and impact of the COVID-19, we would like to share how the Forbes M+A Group is addressing the current situation and the proactive steps we are taking to continue our services. The safety of our employees, community, and clients are our primary concern.

The Forbes M+A Group will remain fully operational with all employees working remotely in order to continue to meet our clients needs.

We’ve been actively monitoring the coronavirus information and standards presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to keep our employees informed on best practices. This includes implementing social distancing, sanitizing procedures, and other advice promoted by the CDC, state and local authorities.

We will continue to keep watch on this situation very closely and make updates as needed. We hope you find these measures appropriate and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we navigate this challenging situation.
