ITC’s Response to COVID-19

Mar 23, 2020

ITC’s top priority is the health, safety and well-being of our employees and contractors while ensuring the communities we serve have the power they need. Here’s what we’re doing as part of the COVID-19 response effort:

 

Ensuring reliable energy delivery

  • As owner and operator of the high-voltage electric transmission grid, we are taking measures to protect our facilities and maintain grid operations – all to continue providing reliable energy to our customers and communities. 
  • As part of our readiness efforts, we are working closely with industry leaders, local and state officials, and our customers across our footprint to coordinate pandemic planning and response and our continuity of operations.
  • We have implemented our business continuity and pandemic plans across our footprint to ensure all essential employees are equipped to maintain operational readiness, including any potential storm response. We also have taken the important step of sequestering some of our essential employees and contractors who are performing critical operations functions to reinforce operational readiness.
  • We have restricted visitors to ITC premises unless their presence is required for essential business operations.

 

Keeping our employees safe and productive

  • All ITC employees are part of the engine that brings safe and reliable energy to our communities. Since we activated our pandemic and business continuity plans in early March, our focus has been on preventing, containing and reducing the transmission of COVID-19 among employees. Our goal all along has been to keep our facilities and employees healthy and safe.
  • All employees in non-essential positions began working from home on March 16. All essential employee positions are equipped to maintain operational readiness, including storm response.  
  • We have implemented company-wide business travel restrictions.

 

ITC will continue with our pandemic planning efforts with the goal of ensuring continued reliable energy delivery and keeping our employees safe. We will provide updates to our stakeholders as necessary to address emerging needs. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact your ITC representative or call 877.ITC.ITC9.
