IN THIS TOGETHER
OUR MITIGATION PROGRAM
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact daily life for millions around the globe, with an ever-evolving host of related risks, regulations, and safety recommendations. We at Columbia Property Trust continually monitor this evolution and adapt our programmatic response to help ensure the workplace safety of our employees and our tenants in each of our buildings, and business continuity for all our stakeholders. We continue to follow the CDC's guidelines and recommendations to help prevent exposure and spread of the virus and to comply with the various restrictions and guidelines imposed by the State Department and local governments in our areas of operation, along with many other business continuity measures.
RESOURCES FOR OUR TENANTS
Since the pandemic’s earliest impact, Columbia’s buildings have remained secure and capable of providing essential services for tenants. With most local restrictions now lifted, we have committed substantial resources and implemented numerous measures to provide for our tenants’ safe and comfortable return to their office spaces when they’re ready, and we are providing new avenues for connection with their building’s community, even while many office workers continue to work from home.
RE-ENTRY TENANT BROCHURE
SHOWING OUR GRATITUDE
As the impact of the pandemic proceeds to unfold, the Columbia team continues to practice good corporate citizenship within its neighborhoods and communities. We want to thank all of the dedicated workers who are performing essential duties to ensure the safety of our communities throughout the crisis. In support of frontline efforts, Columbia has provided resources to organizations contributing to philanthropic causes and relief programs.
- Focused on the regions in which we serve, Columbia has made donations to organizations based upon internal recommendations, existing relationships, and greatest need amid the ongoing COVID crisis. Recipients have included hospitals and other medical services, food services, youth and homeless outreach services, education and learning funds, financial relief programs, and other relief funds, such as the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.
- In addition, over 500,000 square feet of space across our portfolio were made available to local and government agencies, to be used as supply storage, to provide refuge for the homeless, or to allow for extended medical services. Fortunately, the bed shortage began to decline, and our buildings were not needed.
Throughout these challenging several months, we at Columbia have been continually grateful for our dedicated and talented team and for the thousands of tenants and investors whom we are privileged to serve. We look forward with cautious optimism to welcoming our tenants back to their office workplaces in the months ahead, and to helping them rekindle the in-person connections and community that, we believe, makes the office environment essential for successful companies.
