COVID-19 Updates & Resources

On March 11, 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Pandemics happen when a new virus emerges to infect people, and because there is little to no pre-exisiting immunity against the virus, it can easily spread worldwide. The virus has been detected in most countries. The Unites States is seeing different levels of COVID-19 activity. The duration and severity of the spread will be determined by the characterisitics of the virus and the public health response. Many communities are already practicing social distancing, organziations that have the ablility to are having their employees work from home, and businesses are temporarily closing in hopes to stop the spread. 

We are all experiencing the impact of the outbreak, both personally and professionally. We thank everyone for doing their part in helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. As an organization, NCC will help to the best of its ability to support the community during this challenging time.
