Triumph Group COVID-19 Response Plan

This page outlines the series of actions Triumph Group sites and business operations must take to prepare for and continue operations during, and recover from, the current COVID-19 outbreak. This policy outlines the companywide response to minimize the spread of communicable disease in the workplace, protect employee health and safety, and keep facilities in operation.

Triumph Group will follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to inform our response plan. The CDC is the leading national public health institute of the United States. In addition to following CDC guidance, each Triumph site should comply with requirements of their local, legal or regulatory agencies.

May 6, 2020 – Updated guidance for returning to work after isolation to reflect new CDC guidance for persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms and persons who have COVID-19 who have tested positive.

Overarching People Policy updated to reflect extension of home isolation period from 7 to 10 days after symptoms first appeared in persons who display COVID-19 symptoms (symptom-based strategy) and in all persons who test positive for COVID-19.

Overarching Travel Restrictions

  • All business travel- international and domestic (business travel that takes place within your home country) – is suspended.
  • All business travel to/through CDC Level 2 & Level 3 countries is prohibited.
  • All travelers returning from specified Level 3 countries in Europe must stay home for 14 days after returning from travel, monitor their health and practice social distancing.

Overarching People Policy

If you are an employee with an office role that does not directly support our production operations, consult with your manager and begin remote work (work from home).

If you (a) travel to/through a Level 3 or Level 2 country, (b) have traveled to/through a Level 3 or Level 2 country in the last 14 days, or (c) come into contact with an individual displaying symptoms of or diagnosed with COVID-19:

  • Immediately inform your direct supervisor and site management;
  • and Self-quarantine by working from home, taking PTO or unpaid leave for 14 days from the day you left the Level 3 or 2 country or interacted with the individual displaying symptoms of COVID-19.

All travelers returning from specified Level 3 countries in Europe must stay home for 14 days after returning from travel, monitor their health and practice social distancing.

Employees and residents of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut should refrain from non-essential domestic travel for 14 days effective immediately. All Triumph employees are advised to also refrain from non-essential travel, by any means of transportation, to these states. Any employee who has had personal travel to these states is advised to also self-quarantine until 14 days has passed since they left the area. Triumph sites in Connecticut are classified as a critical infrastructure industry and the operations remain open.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19:

  • Immediately inform your direct supervisor and site management; and
  • Self-quarantine by working from home or taking PTO or unpaid leave, in accordance with local legal requirements.
  • Employees may return to work after completing home 10 days of isolation after symptoms first appeared.

All visitors must complete Visitor COVID-19 Questionnaire 24 hours prior to coming to any Triumph site. Share this link with visitors at least 24 hours prior to site visit:

Visitors will not be admitted to Triumph sites if any of the following apply:

  • Visitor has had direct contact with an individual(s) displaying symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

Temperature checks will be required by all employees, visitors and contractors to gain access to Triumph facilities:

  • When an employee, visitor or contractor registers a temperature greater than 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) they will be directed to the ‘waiting area’. After 5-10 minutes another temperature reading will be administered. In the event the temperature is below 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) that person will be allowed to enter the facility.
  • In the event the second temperature scan is above 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) that person will be asked to leave immediately. Employees should contact their supervisor. Refer to Triumph Company policy for Return to Work procedures.

Returning to work after isolation. Employees who have stayed at home (home isolated for COVID-19) can discontinue home isolation under the following conditions:

Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms, but testing is not recommended, or no testing is available and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

  • At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • Improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) and
  • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

  • Improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath), and
  • Negative results of an FDA Emergency Use Authorized COVID-19 molecular assay for detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA from at least two consecutive respiratory specimens collected ≥24 hours apart (total of two negative specimens)

For Persons Who have NOT had COVID-19 Symptoms but Tested Positive and are Under Isolation.

Note, because of the absence of symptoms, it is not possible to gauge where these individuals are in the course of their illness.

  • Persons with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 who have had symptoms (time-based strategy) and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

    At least 10 days have passed since the date of their first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test assuming they have not subsequently developed symptoms since their positive test. If they develop symptoms, then the symptom-based or test-based strategy should be used.

  • For Persons who have been exposed to COVID-19

    CDC recommends 14 days of quarantine after exposure based on the time it takes to develop illness if infected. Thus, it is possible that a person known to be infected could leave isolation earlier than a person who is quarantined because of the possibility they are infected.
