Editor's Note: 12 SDG&E employees have volunteered for sequestration to ensure COVID-19 safety measures are met while continuing safe, reliable grid operations. These employees live at their job site, working 12-hour shifts for 14 days straight apart from their families. We couldn't be more proud and grateful for the work of our team to keep the lights on and natural gas flowing during this time. Their work was recently featured in the below article from the San Diego Union Tribune.
