Canadian seafood company High Liner incurred $1.6 million (€1.3 million) in incremental costs associated with the implementation of measures to protect workers from the coronavirus, the company reported Tuesday when it released its second-quarter financial results.

The money was used to, among other things, implement a work-from-home policy for all salaried employees able to perform their duties at home; restrict employee business travel and implement post-travel employee screening; strengthen clean workplace practices, including enhanced frequency of deep cleaning; implement a COVID-19 Task Force comprised of employees and executive leadership; introduce temporary extraordinary recognition pay for all employees working in critical operational roles in production and warehouse facilities; and develop employee screening, hygiene and social distancing practices as recommended by health authorities.
