Dear Vanguard Salon Customers and Future Professionals,

Vanguard is always committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. As such, we are closely monitoring the

ongoing COVID-19 outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention).

We want to share with you the actions we are taking to help protect our employees as

well as all those we serve.

  •  Advised our employees to follow public health authorities’ guidance regarding hygiene and personal
  • Instituted a “COVID-19 Policy”, mandating employees who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home,
    consult with a medical professional, and be tested for COVID-19 before returning to work.
  • Taking extra steps to insure all items we touch which are destined for customer delivery are handled in
    the most sanitary manner feasible.
  • Instructed facility cleaning service providers to spend extra time sanitizing anything and everything
    humans touch. Our employees are doing the same throughout each day.
  • Canceled/postponed all non-essential business travel.
  • Canceled/postponed all group events through the month of April.
  • Utilizing our company websites and various social media outlets to provide the latest on our actions
    relative to COVID-19.

Regarding Vanguard College – Vanguard College campus facilities are closed and will be shifting to digital-based,

on-line course instruction. All our actions are being taken based on the guidance and direction of high level

authorities at the state and federal levels.

On a personal level – We are a unique people here in Louisiana. We face incredible adversity time and again. Yet

time and again we rebound. We are a strong, resilient people who do not hesitate to do all we can to help others

in need. Let’s stay calm and remain vigilant. The more we do now on an individual basis will most certainly lessen

the impact on ourselves, family members, neighbors, and community.

We appreciate the trust that you place in Vanguard. We will continue to closely monitor the circumstance and take

actions necessary to help keep our employees and customers safe while providing the products and services to

you, our valued customers and Future Professionals.

Kindest regards,

Mark and Lisa Palermo

Founders, The Vanguard Nation
