Old Republic Title's Response to COVID-19
We will be adding all important information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to this page. Please refer back to this page frequently. Updates will happen as we have them available. During this period, Old Republic Title will continue to support the viability of its business and business partners while, most importantly, assisting in the preservation of the health and welfare of the general public, our employees, customers and agents.
A Message from the President of Old Republic Title
Given the recent developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19), I want to provide an update on the measures Old Republic Title is putting into place. The health and well-being of our employees, agents and customers is our top priority and we're committed to protecting those around us. Our thoughts are with all those impacted by COVID-19 as we take the necessary precautions to help slow the spread of the virus.
As a Company with a substantial workforce and offices across the country, we know the decisions we make not only affect our employees and their families, but the communities where they live and work. To that end, we have eliminated non-essential work travel, cancelled all scheduled events for employees and customers, and temporarily suspended in-person meetings for sales and audit personnel. We are further working to limit the number of people in our offices by implementing a mix of remote work and split operations, while continuing to conduct enhanced sanitation practices in our offices.
During this time, our goal is to tap the resources, tools and technology we have available to enable our teams in keeping business moving forward to meet the title insurance and settlement services needs of those who count on us. We are empowering our managers and employees, asking them to be flexible, especially those at higher risk for complications from the virus, for those who have family members at higher risk, or for those who face challenges related to childcare.
While County Recorders’ offices are closing in some locations around the country, we are doing all we can to continue meeting the needs of our customers while conducting transactions. Old Republic Title stands ready to assist with the underwriting of title insurance policies.
We will continue to make decisions with our employees’, agents’ and customers’ well-being at the forefront. As our Company has for more than a century, we will adapt to withstand the ups and downs that come our way, including the many implications of this COVID-19 national emergency. Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in Old Republic Title and for navigating these changes with us.
