In light of the developments regarding COVID-19, We'd like to first say that our thoughts are with those affected by the virus in the U.S. and around the globe. At North Metro Orthotics & Prosthetics, the well-being and safety of our teams, clients and communities are our top priority. As we closely monitor the evolving impact, we are implementing ongoing measures to ensure the health and safety of our staff, while also maintaining the highest level of service to our clients.
To that end, and as more jurisdictions across the country are closing schools, limiting large gatherings, and taking other measures to create social distance to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have asked some of our office staff to work remotely in the near term. We have robust technology and a culture of flexibility that enables our staff to efficiently and effectively perform their work remotely. Our practitioners are working onsite to meet and care for our patients with scheduled appointments. We will continue to tailor our approach to meet your specific needs, and we will adjust and communicate with you as circumstances change.
We are keeping up with the guidance of the World Health Organization, CDC and state and local authorities related to travel, quarantine, meetings, and events, and we will continue to adjust our guidance accordingly.
