US States making numerous adjustments in restrictions as infections rates change in certain locations. Changes to guidelines and protocols occur frequently and restrictions vary greatly by state and locality. The U.S. surpassed 4 million cases while the mortality rate is 3.6% of all known cases (4.1% globally). Over 480,000 new cases were reported in the last 7 days.
We are continuing to monitor surges in cases and state responses including increases in testing and large-scale gatherings. Telework when possible, social distancing, eliminating non-essential travel, and applying aggressive preventive measures all contribute to lessening the spread of the virus. We strongly encourage everyone to proactively plan and prepare for continuing changes in guidelines. We are available to assist as necessary.
