COVID-19 UPDATES

Mar 23, 2020

The unprecedented spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Canada and around the world has, understandably, raised concerns for you and your family. At Guild/HMS, the well-being of our clients, our employees and each of your families is a significant concern for us. As such, safety will be our main priority as this situation continues to evolve. 

Please note at this time, our Shoppers Mall Brandon and Shilo locations are closed.  All other locations are open for Autopac transactions which require an in person visit if they can’t be completed over the phone or electronically.   Though we are trying our best to limit in-person interactions, we have developed a process to assist in flattening the curve.

COVID-19 CUSTOMER AUTHORIZATION

For Autopac transactions which require an in person visit, we have created a process to help flatten the curve.     

  • These transactions will be conducted with a limit to the number of customers in office, ensuring proper spacing between customers and sanitizing after each customer transaction.  This will allow us to maintain social distancing protocols but provide service to those customers with urgent MPI needs that cannot be completed by phone or email. 
  • Once you arrive at the branch, please call the number provided.  Our limit is 2 patrons at a time in the office.   
  • You will be put in a queue and when it is your turn, we will call you to come in.  This will prevent groups from gathering in our office and allow social distancing protocols to be observed. 
  • We ask that clients experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (including fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat or difficulty breathing) or those that have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days do not enter our offices. 

All Other Insurance Needs

We are in the business of protecting you, your family and your business, and we need to continue to do that as long as this crisis lasts, so: If you have any changes to make to your policy continue to call any of our offices or your account representative directly.   Many of our staff are set up to have the ability to work remotely from home with full telephone access and connectivity to ensure customer service is maintained to the best of our ability. 

If you have a claim, you can continue to reach out, as always, to your account representative but we also encourage you to report your claim directly to your insurance company. Insurance company claims contact information can be found on the Claims page of our website. 

If you need to pay a bill, we encourage you to visit our Payment page on our website. if you require an alternate payment option, your account representative has a number of other options to facilitate you making your payment. 

Actions we are taking to keep us all safer

We are taking steps to help reduce the spread of this disease and protect our clients, our staff and their families. These proactive measures include:

  • We are requesting, whenever possible, that you connect with your account representative in a method that is safe for everyone – we are always here for you by phone or email.  

  • We have suspended all work travel until we receive appropriate direction from the authorities that such travel is safe once again.

  • Any employee traveling from outside the province will automatically work from home for 14 days.

Our Governments are enacting a wide range of measures to protect our citizens so please continue to check official government websites for the most up-to-date information on how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
