NCBA CLUSA is monitoring the ongoing concern regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) as it continues to spread to more than 100 locations internationally, including in the U.S. As the situation evolves, NCBA CLUSA is referring to the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to inform our operations in the U.S. and in the 21 countries around the world in which we implement development projects.
At the same time, many of our members are beginning to feel the impact of COVID-19 on their cooperatives and communities, and are preparing for potential business interruptions. As a service to our members and the co-op community, this webpage will address and amplify ways to prepare for and mitigate the risks of COVID-19, including how co-ops can handle business functions such as travel, events, telework policies and contingency planning while also addressing productivity, staff anxiety and maintaining workplace norms.
If you have resources you would like to share with the co-op community, or if you have questions about COVID-19’s impact on your co-op, please reach out.
