As we continue to monitor developments regarding the coronavirus, our focus is the safety and well-being of our customers, employees and the communities we serve, and our thoughts are with those who have been impacted. To that end, we are taking the necessary steps to avoid potential disruptions of service to our customers.
We have contingency plans in place that are designed to prevent any business disruptions due to coronavirus impacts, as we do for any number of scenarios. These include remote access capabilities at the corporate office, alternate assignment locations for employees and continuity plans for critical operations.
Further, out of an abundance of caution, and as part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health of our employees and customers from the potential impacts of the coronavirus, MS-IL has enacted new international and domestic business travel restrictions, and new approval requirements for business travel and MS-IL hosted events. We also continue to share health and wellness information, including prevention tips from the Center for Disease Control, with employees.
While it is impossible for anyone to predict the spread of the coronavirus and fully understand its impact, it does not alter MS-IL’s focus on continuing to serve you.
