After nearly a month of Foreclosurepedia’s publishing on the fact that there has been ZERO guidance from National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) members with respect to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Mortgage Contracting Services (MCS) finally acknowledged its existence. The only problem is that as opposed to advising Labor on how to stay safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19, MCS merely wanted to ensure that Labor had the capacity to continue working. I mean there are a lot of things which NAMFS and MCS, in particular, have missed the mark on, but here was an opportunity to not only potentially prevent community spread of COVID-19, NAMFS and MCS could have potentially saved lives. The cognitive dissonance with that type of belief system is that it would not have made profit. Here is their Memo #1804,
MCS continues to monitor the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) with frequent updates from many sources, including the Center for Disease Controls (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Because this is a rapidly evolving issue, we expect to review and revise our level of preparedness as needed.
Consistent with our efforts, we are also asking our vendors and business partners to provide updates on your level of preparedness. Please complete the survey below as soon as possible in order to keep MCS abreast of your efforts to manage any possible business interruption.
One might have thought that MCS would — at minimum — have instructed inspectors to use proper hand washing techniques and utilize hand sanitizers before and after touching door handles or adhering Notices. Yeah, that kind of common sense approach to protecting the American Public has never been in the repertoire of either NAMFS members nor MCS as a whole.
