Read our updated post from April 22

To our valued customers,

As your trusted Chevrolet dealer, your safety is our top priority.

After taking time to invest in our health and safety policies, we are proud to announce our service operations (mechanical, parts and body repair) departments will re-open on Thursday, April 2. The Sales and Leasing Departments will re-open Monday, April 6.

In accordance with recommendations from the governor and local health officials, we have prepared our staff and facilities to continue operations in the safest, healthiest ways possible. With that in mind, we have taken several safety precautions in each of our departments to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

All Departments

  • Employees will have their temperatures taken daily with laser thermometers before each shift
  • Each employee will receive a daily sticker verifying their temperature meets the CDC requirements to be at work
  • Dealership and vehicle areas will be cleaned with portable ultraviolet sanitizers that kill viruses
  • High-touch surfaces such as counters, doors and interactive screens will be disinfected hourly or after each use
  • We will clean and disinfect all work spaces, including computer keyboards, printers, fax machines, copiers, chairs and phones throughout the day
  • Bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected hourly
  • If an employee is sick or appears ill, they will be sent home
  • Spit shields will be installed in customer-facing work stations

  • Disinfectant will be sprayed every two hours using the same product trusted in today’s nursing homes
  • Employees will use caution when entering customer vehicles, using plastic mats on seats and disinfecting steering wheels

Online Resources

With online buying tools and vehicle information available on our website, customers can complete the majority of the purchasing process from home. Click the Calculate Your Payment link on vehicle detail pages and spend only a few minutes at the dealership checking out the vehicle and signing forms.

Families rely on their vehicles to get safely to stores and medical appointments. Health care workers need to get reliably to and from their shifts at the hospital. Commercial trucks deliver basic necessities throughout our community each day. It is our responsibility to support these individuals with safe and dependable transportation.

The entire team at Progressive Chevrolet is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation for updates. As always, we will continue to do everything we can to protect you, our loyal customers. If you have any questions, please reach out to talk to a member of our team.

Stay safe,
