A Message from our Leadership Team

We at Chase International are very aware of the fears and anxieties we are all feeling due to the current coronavirus concerns. The events of the last few weeks are affecting each of us in a very personal way.

We are and have always been especially committed to the health and safety of both our clients and our employees and strictly adhere to guidelines put forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and local agencies. 

Please know that your safety is very important to us. 


How we live our lives is up to us.

Facts not Fear. Clean Hands. Open Heart.

We will provide updates as we get any revised guidance from public health officials.  

Be well and stay healthy. In light and love,

Your Chase Family Leadership Team
