Please continue to refer to the National Library of Medicine for updates on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
For Continuity of Operations planning, businesses and libraries may want to review these resources:
- On February 12, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
- Engage state and local health departments to confirm channels of communication and methods for dissemination of local outbreak information.
- If you complete the freely available NLM online course In Case of Emergencies: Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning you will end up with a fully developed one-page plan.
- Your Regional Medical Library (Find your RML here) will have information on local resources. Also, many of the RMLs have recently opened funding opportunities for members.
