MI Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The health and wellbeing of our team members, customers, and local communities is our top priority. During these turbulent times, we are using the recommendations and precautions outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help us make safe and practical business decisions. You can view the latest CDC recommendations HERE.

In addition, we are actively monitoring communications from the CDC, the World Health Organization, and the Department of Public Health to ensure we’re meeting or exceeding the latest recommendations outlined by these health and safety experts.

Our COVID-19 Guiding Principles

This national pandemic is an anxious and unprecedented time for all of us. MI Windows and Doors is committed to keeping our stakeholders (team members, customers, suppliers, and our local communities) safe and as comfortable as possible. A COVID-19 response team has been formed to lead our business through these extraordinary times. We have recently partnered with experts such as an industrial hygienist and a nationwide remediation contractor to help inform our decisions, analyze potential exposure risks, and disinfect workspaces.

Every decision we make is based on our assessment of our two principles, in this order:

1. Provide a safe place to work

2. Provide jobs within our communities


Things are happening fast, and the MI leadership team promises we will continue to communicate whenever we have important new information.

General Precautions and Recommendations

All MI team members should do their best to adhere to the following procedures to help reduce the risk of spreading this disease.


  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (i.e. cell phones, tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.)
  • The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public. Learn more about this recommendation HERE.

Workplace Safety and Procedures at MI

We have implemented several actions specific to our business meant to address the growing Coronavirus concern.

Social Distancing
  • Limited business-related travel until further notice
  • Replacing face-to-face meetings with virtual meetings and postpone all events
  • Allow only essential visitors to access our facilities
  • Reduce personal communication with high-risk team members
  • Added visual indication to personal space separation in production areas
  • Increased PPE availability for team members who must work near one another
  • Adjusted break times where possible to limit team member congregation
  • Adjusted shift start and stop times to increase the time between shifts
  • Outfitted team members of any disciplines possible to work remotely with equipment and processes to work from home
  • Implemented mobile punch-in/out functionality where available
  • Updated attendance policy to increase flexibility for our team members
  • Requiring team members who recently traveled to or through countries with a Level 4 travel advisory or higher (per the U.S. State Department) to contact their local HR representative prior to returning to work. Please note, the countries initially referenced in the CDC’s Risk Assessment are changing rapidly, so please refer to the State Department’s Travel Advisory Listing to identify all Level 4 countries. View state.gov map HERE.
  • Display information from the CDC throughout our facilities
  • Communicate business changes and practices with team members
  • Share COVID-19 information with our production teams daily
Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitizing
  • Replenish hand sanitizers throughout our facilities whenever possible
  • Fans that circulate respiratory-level air are turned off on production floors
Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitation of Facilities
  • Utilizing enhanced cleaning procedures throughout our facilities
  • Cleaning professionals at each facility have adjusted to more frequent cleanings of common areas such as disinfecting all high-volume touch points in the hallways, lobbies, waiting areas, foyers, entrances and conference rooms, door handles, panic bars, push plates, light fixtures, time clocks, chair arms, printer touch points, vending buttons, handles and including  phones, computer mice, keyboards, desks, tables and chair arms.
  • A public cleaning notice is posted in each high-traffic area which displays who is responsible for cleaning and the dates and times of past cleanings.
  • Cleaning agents used for sanitation in our facilities fall within the "List N" guidelines.
  • Supervisors, safety team, and committees work together with production team members to provide basic direction and access to supplies.
  • Team members are required to wipe down their workstation with an approved cleaning agent.

How to Clean and Disinfect (per CDC guidelines)

  • For disinfection, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol, and most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.
  • Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
  • Prepare a bleach solution by mixing:
    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water or
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
