The McCrone Group’s Response to COVID-19

Update: Thursday, March 20, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to intensify throughout the United States, the State of Illinois has issued a shelter-in-place order through April 7, 2020. In adherence with this order, we are taking active measures to protect the health and safety of our staff and those with whom we conduct business.

The McCrone Group (TMG) will temporarily cease normal business operations and ask all but essential personnel to work at home from Monday, March 23, 2020 through Tuesday, April 7, 2020. This reduction of people at our office will help to reduce the potential risk and spread of infection.

At this time, we anticipate resuming operations on Wednesday, April 8, 2020. This page will be updated to reflect changes to our schedule and operational status.

Additionally, we are restricting all visitors from our facility. If you are scheduled to visit TMG, please communicate with your McCrone contact to reschedule your visit to a future date beyond April 30, 2020.

The following information is the latest regarding our operational status.

McCrone Associates, Inc. – Analytical Laboratory

We have asked the majority of our staff to work from home in the best capacity possible. We understand this will impact our ability to conduct analyses of your samples, but we ask for your understanding during this unprecedented period.  Project leaders will be available via email, but otherwise will have limited communication capabilities.

We will not be accepting any new analytical projects between Monday, March 23, 2020 and Tuesday, April 7, 2020. Please do NOT send samples to our laboratory for analysis during this period of time.
