COVID-19 Update

May 1, 2020

To all of our valued customers and business partners:

In the month since I last wrote regarding the impact of, and NYS&W's response to, the COVID-19 pandemic, NYS&W has continued to follow, and exceed, the recommended practices issued by the CDC and other governmental authorities for facility cleaning, social distancing, staggering of work shifts, monitoring of employee health, providing current information to our employees on best practices to avoid the virus, and requiring employees with symptoms and known or suspected exposure to self-quarantine and stay home. I am pleased to report that only one of NYS&W's employees has tested positive for the virus; he is recovering well at home and expected to return to work soon.

Operationally, NYS&W's interchanges with its Class I railroad partners remain fluid with no delays. Similarly, although we have adjusted our planned 2020 capital improvements and train schedule in light of reduced freight volumes, NYS&W's service to our customers has not been negatively impacted.

This week, we are beginning to look forward with some optimism to re-opening of some sectors of the economy in May. Given that re-establishing supply chains can present as many challenges as shutting them off, we ask that you continue to keep us informed of your plans and of any needs you can anticipate.

As always, please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

Nathan R. Fenno, President
