How NWNA is Helping Protect the Health and Safety of its Employees from COVID-19

As we meet our responsibility to deliver essential goods, the health and safety of our people, customers and the communities where we operate is of the utmost importance to us. We are following the guidance from local public health experts, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), and have instituted further precautions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These include providing 24-hour cleaning for our factories; staggering employee schedules to create social distance; and converting meeting rooms in our factories into break rooms to enable employees to spread out on their breaks.


We have also advised all our employees to continue implementing the everyday preventative actions that the CDC recommends, including frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds and consulting a doctor immediately if they start to exhibit flu-like symptoms. All the aforementioned precautions are in addition to the stringent standards we already had in place in our factories for the manufacturing of bottled water that are consistent with current Good Manufacturing Practices.


How NWNA is Supporting Employees in these Challenging Times

As employees rise to the new challenges this crisis brings, we are providing extra support to make sure they are properly taken care of. Here’s how we’re supporting them:


  • Guaranteeing 12 weeks of regular wages in the event of a full or partial facility closure.
  • Paying eligible frontline employees an additional 12% of their earnings for at least 12 weeks.
  • Providing additional time off without reducing sick or vacation balances if employees are impacted by coronavirus.
  • Expanded health benefits for telemedicine and prescription delivery, mental health care, childcare, and covering medically necessary testing for COVID-19 at no cost.
  • Increased the number of Employee Assistance Program counseling visits during this period of time from 5 to 10 visits; free of charge to employees.
  • Continuing to hire, train and support thousands of employees across our business.
  • Providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to all employees.
