This notice has been updated on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Lake States Environmental continues to monitor the updates and guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Wisconsin and Minnesota Departments of Health as part of our efforts to manage and minimize risk for our class participants and instructors. We have been implementing all features of the restrictions imposed.
With the orders that the states had extended in April and May there were certain allowances from the state agencies regarding the expiration and renewal requirements of people's certifications. In Wisconsin all asbestos and lead certifications have been extended to June 30, 2020. In Minnesota a waiver has been issued by the department to allow certified indiviuals to continue to work on a card that expires on or after March 16 for up to 30 days after Governor Waltz's Declaration of Peacetime Emergency is lifted or expires as long as they apply for renewal by the time their card expires. We are rescheduling refreshers for Minnesota certification in Late May and June and Wisconsin certification in June.
Lake States is remaining vigilant in being a partner in the communities we are in, promoting compliance with the requests of the local, state and federal governments. We are also doing all we can to establish and provide the opportunities for all to receive the refresher training you will need to maintain your credentials to offer your service and contribution to friends, neighbors, clients and communities you serve. We will continue to earn your trust and patronage by doing all that we possibly can to make this trying time as simple to deal with as possible as it relates to maintaining your asbestos and lead credentials.
