SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Employees for National Grid are working constantly to ensure service during the coronavirus pandemic, especially in northeastern areas like New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The company is making sure some employees are on site at all times, with 20 workers sleeping on RVs and 10 sleeping in the control room building after pulling 12-hour shifts.

Daniel Cammarata, the director of the Transmission Control Center in Onondaga County says they started preparing for this course of action on March 23.

"Where we're located in Onondaga County, the cases were very low, so we wanted to get ahead of this before it was in the community. So, we started to proactively sequester them and when they came in, they met with a nurse to get their temperature taken," he said.

There are also laundry facilities on site.

Cammarata says employees are still following social distancing guidelines with customers and each other.
