In the midst of the current coronavirus pandemic, the world is changing in ways the vast majority of us have never seen in our lifetimes. In addition to schools and professional sports being shut down, many businesses across North America are closing their doors in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. While these measures are important for the protection of public health, it understandably has a lot of people worried about their financial responsibilities.
Earlier today, Ontario premier Doug Ford announced that the provincial government intends to introduce legislation that will provide job-protected leave to employees in isolation or quarantine because of the coronavirus. This includes protecting those who need to be away from work in order to care for children during school and daycare closures.
Shortly after, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canada would be shutting its borders to everyone who is not a Canadian or American citizen, with some exceptions. Needless to say, we are living in unprecedented times. At MeloTel, we’re taking precautions of our own by having each of our team members work from home until further notice. We’d also like to make the following announcement.
As MeloTel’s Founder and CEO, John Meloche revealed on Facebook, last week, we have been noticing that many volunteer community groups are starting up and offering volunteer-based support services to members of their communities. Such efforts include food delivery and grocery pickup for the elderly and much more. “This warms my heart!” John declared. The MeloTel team wishes to join him in expressing our appreciation and admiration for such groups.
To assist with these amazing humanitarian efforts, during the COVID-19 crisis, MeloTel is very pleased to offer FREE Single Number Reach services to community groups who are participating.
It’s a great way to ensure you keep in touch with any and all of your clients, customers and colleagues. It enables you to forward your business phone number to up to five different devices of your choice. When the number is dialled, all five devices will ring at the same time. With this service, you can enable several of your co-workers and/or group members to handle important phone calls coming in to your group, regardless of their physical locations.
As well, you can stop giving out your personal cell phone number and have your calls routed differently after regular working hours. With Single Number Reach, you will never miss a call no matter where you are!
If you are part of a community group in need of communication services so that you can connect your community with your cause, during the COVID-19 crisis, this free telephony offer is available to you immediately. This offer is valid in any part of Canada. To get set up, please don’t hesitate to call MeloTel at 1-888-MELOTEL, use the Live Chat feature on our website or email John directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
