COVID-19 Updates


Effective midnight, 03/27/2020, the state of Minnesota enacted a Stay at Home Order for all non-essential activities, requiring many businesses to close through the duration of the order. As QA1 is a critical manufacturer, proudly supporting essential businesses across several industries, QA1 has remained and will continue to remain open during this order. As such, our Essential Business partners and Critical Channel Partners should expect limited impact as it relates to Minnesota’s Stay at Home order (now changed to a Stay Safe order, effective 5/14/2020).

For specific COVID-19 questions, please visit the CDC website.

While we remain operational, the health and safety of our team members and community remains our top priority. Every effort is being made to follow advice of the CDC and other government health agencies to slow the spread of COVID-19.

To protect our team and surrounding community, some of the measures we have implemented include: 

  • Working remotely wherever possible
  • Adjusted work cells to promote social distancing for those within the building
