UESI'S response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Federal Government repeals mask mandate 4/19/2022
Companies have lifted restrictions following a federal judge's decision to strike down the national mask mandate. 
Airlines and airports eagerly dropped the restrictions on Monday after the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced it wouldn't enforce the January 2021 order that applied to airplanes, airports, taxis and other mass transit.
Please verify with your carrier or if any specific rules or regulations based on carriers are still in effect. We encourage individuals to make the best decision to support their personal wellbeing!

UESI remains fully functional and is focused on keeping our staff, customers, and vendors safe and healthy. The nature of our work dictates that we continue to dispatch crews to support our customers who provide “essential” or “life sustaining” services such as electric power generation. Currently we are supporting critical maintenance work at several nuclear power plants and numerous smaller projects related to essential infrastructure. In each case, we are working diligently to ensure the safety of our personnel as well as our customers and other support contractors.
New Nationwide Test to Treat Initiative 
  The new nationwide Test to Treat initiative provides quick access to free treatment for COVID-19. Through this program, people can get tested and – if they are positive and treatments are appropriate for them – receive a prescription from a health care provider, and have their prescription filled all at one location. 
  • These "One-Stop Test to Treat" sites are available at hundreds of locations nationwide, including pharmacy-based clinics, federally qualified health centers, and long-term care facilities. 
  • People can continue to be tested and treated by their own health care providers who can appropriately prescribe these oral antivirals at locations where the medicines are distributed. 
  • A call center 1-800-232-0233 is available every day from 8:00 am to midnight ET to get help in more than 150 other languages. 
  • The Disability Information and Access Line is available to help people with disabilities access services. Call 1-888-677-1199, Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm ET or email DIAL@usaginganddisability.org.
