Dear Clients and Friends,
Tom Neff, Managing PartnerWe appreciate the many comments and communications we have shared together during this COVID-19 crisis. We wish that you, your families, and your businesses are well and strong.

We have worked with many of you to navigate the government programs and the economic realities. We hope we have helped.

As the counties begin lifting restrictions on movements and operations, we wanted to let you know RINA’s plans.

On June 15th, RINA started allowing a small number of staff to work in the firm’s offices. Only staff who ask to work in the RINA office instead of remotely will be scheduled into the offices. Employees will wear masks in the offices and there will be social distancing, hygiene, and contact logging procedures in place.
