Farpointe Data Temporarily Halts Operations


March 17, 2020

Dear Farpointe Data Partners,

Yesterday afternoon the seven counties comprising the San Francisco Bay Area, including California’s Santa Clara, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Marin and Santa Cruz counties, ordered their residents to stay home. This order was issued to blunt the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

As Farpointe is located in the City of San Jose, Santa Clara County, we are affected by this “shelter in place” order. The order took effect this morning at 12:01 AM (PDT) and will continue to be in effect until 11:59 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, April 7th, or until it is extended, rescinded, or superseded by the Santa Clara County Health Officer.

The Farpointe home office is now closed. All associated manufacturing and shipping operations are halted. Wednesday, April 8th, is the date we currently anticipate reopening the office and re-starting manufacturing and shipping operations.

For more information, here is a link to the shelter in place order, and other coronavirus-related resources.
