Please continue to refer to the National Library of Medicine for updates on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) [ https://www.nlm.nih.gov/index.html#Novel_Coronavirus ].

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) [ https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/guidance-busin... ].

* Engage state [ https://www.cste.org/page/EpiOnCall ] and local [ https://www.naccho.org/membership/lhd-directory ] 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 [ https://www.nlm.nih.gov/dis_courses/coop/index.html ]you will end up with a fully developed one-page plan.

* Your Regional Medical Library (Find your RML here [ https://nnlm.gov/ ]) will have information on local resources. Also, many of the RMLs have recently opened funding opportunities for members.
