Scott D. Farmer, Cintas' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The COVID-19 coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic was a significant disruption to the economy as well as to our business in our fiscal 2020 fourth quarter. The government-required closure of many businesses certainly had an impact on our fiscal 2020 fourth quarter financial results.
