With media coverage of the novel COVID-19’s spreading
worldwide, we understand the potential for disruption issues which might affect
productivity and service levels. While
much is yet to be known, companies may be impacted by a significant number of
associates unable to report for work due to illness.
In keeping with our personnel and disaster preparedness

cases of COVID-19 affecting associates or our ability to provide services to
QIC continues to review and implement CDC and WHO guidance,
