The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on our March 31, 2020 operations and financial results. The business continues to operate with two shifts and no layoffs despite a slight softening in our business during the first quarter of 2020. We have seen an increase in the adoption of MediTrac® flexible medical gas piping systems, used for medical gases (including oxygen) in new or renovated health care facilities. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter and beyond will depend on government plans to combat the contagion while attempting to restore the economy, which are highly uncertain and unpredictable at this time.
