Coronavirus—COVID-19 Update


Coronavirus Update

Updated Apr. 7th, 2020

The health and safety of our customers, partners and employees is and always will be our highest priority. The dynamic nature of this outbreak requires us to be flexible in how we respond to changing needs while doing everything in our control to ensure your critical infrastructure is operational and safe.

We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization’s (WHO) statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and following guidelines from these agencies and the local health departments.

Appointment-Based Visits Only

Appointments are for “critical functions” only to reduce the possible spread of the illness in our data centers and offices. Critical functions include making repairs, performing critical maintenance, adding capacity and collecting deliveries to add to your environment. For appointments:

  • Schedule appointment through the customer portal
  • Email support@cologix.com with the date, time and reason for appointment
  • Complete and sign the COVID-19 disclosure form with an electronic signature before your appointment

Providing safe and clean environments for our customers, partners and employees is always a top priority for Cologix. We thank you in advance for your help in keeping our data centers safe by visiting only when business critical. Rest assured we are taking additional steps to protect the spread of the virus through the following:

  • Multiple times a day cleaning of biometric and other high touch & high-trafficked areas
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the Data Centers
  • Non-critical Cologix employees are encouraged to work off-site
  • Hygienic Disaster Recovery space available at select locations

Customer care (contact your sales rep or support@cologix.com for details)
