At Layer 9, serving you is the most important thing we do. As COVID-19 begins to impact our community and daily lives, we want to assure you that we are monitoring developments very closely and taking action at our office to protect and support our family of customers and employees. As of today, we are following the CDC guidelines for social distancing by having our team work remotely. We have also paused all non-emergency onsite work for the next two weeks. We will continue to monitor the changing conditions and update you with any changes to our timeline.

We remain committed to providing you the best customer service and are committed to keeping your services up and running. We are ready, able, and experienced at working remotely so that we can allow our team to make the best decision for themselves and their families, while still offering you the same experience you’ve come to love.

We recognize this is a challenging time in the world but feel confident that as a company and community we can get through this together.

We have included below some items to consider if you are thinking about implementing remote work at your office as well. If you need assistance setting up any of these additional services, our team will be glad to help. We just ask for your patience as we have a high volume of requests coming through and will be taking them on a first come first serve basis.
