As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we have a heightened awareness at NEMRA of our responsibility to our employees and to our membership. We have three priorities guiding our decisions during this time of uncertainty: to keep our employees safe, to ensure service to our customers and partners, and to do our part in preventing the spread of the virus.
For the past year, we had implemented and are already adept at remote work and virtual collaboration and we are confident that you will continue to receive the same high level of availability, service and support from us that you’ve come to expect.
We also recognize we have a larger role to play in protecting our membership, and are doing our part to minimize any contribution to the spread of the virus. We have made the decision to cancel, and will be rescheduling meetings and educational sessions that were planned for April and May, as well as to pause any non-essential travel. These decisions were made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our employees, our members and their families.
We have heard and noted that several manufacturers and distributors have taken similar measures and encourage you to seek further details regarding their expectations on sales calls, office visits, and participation in local events, if any.
Finally, given the fluid nature of these events, below is a list of considerations and resources that we have researched and pulled together for you.
Most importantly, stay informed
