In the past week, governments in the western United States, in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, have issued orders closing certain businesses and restricting gatherings and movement of people. All of those orders thus far have recognized that supply chains are critical to public health and safety, and so have allowed freight companies like Oak Harbor to continue operations. In these challenging times, we are committed to providing peace of mind by remaining open and delivering freight to customers who are able to accept deliveries.
