March 18, 2020 – COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Valued MaxYield Members and Clients;

The outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the steps necessary to limit its spread has caused further adjustments on how to serve our clients. In addition to our update on March 16th, I want to provide further updates and clarification on the actions we’re taking to ensure the health and safety of our team members and clients.

Further steps MaxYield Cooperative is taking through at least April 4, 2020 to help protect our team members and clients include…

  • Effective at the start of business Thursday, March 19, 2020, we will restrict visitors to our offices to only essential business that cannot be done by phone or electronically. We ask that you make appointments whenever possible.
  • Visits by our vendors and suppliers to our offices is not permitted until further notice. Every effort should be made to conduct business by phone or electronically.
  • When possible, we may have several team members working from home. We may have a limited number of team members at some offices, including the corporate office.
  • Pursuant to Iowa Governor Reynolds’ recent proclamation, convenience store patrons are required to immediately leave the store after making their food and beverage purchases. The dining areas at our Cenex stores are CLOSED until such restrictions are removed by the State of Iowa.
  • We continue to receive grain, deliver your products and operate our Cenex stores. We ask your help in limiting interactions and conducting proper social distancing with our team whenever possible.

This is a rapidly changing situation. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 through the CDC at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov and the State of Iowa. If there are any changes to this policy we will communicate as such.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support of MaxYield. We implemented these measures to enhance our likelihood of entering spring season healthy. Hopefully in 2-3 weeks we are in the field, very busy and the impacts of this situation have diminished.

Do not hesitate to call your MaxYield location with questions or concerns.
