We at WDA continue to monitor the latest information about the coronavirus. Lately, we have asked all staff to clean their workspaces regularly with disinfectants and do the same for our common areas like kitchen and conference rooms and handwashing dispensers are available in several places throughout the office.
However, it became apparent these last few days that we need to set up our staff to work remotely. We built an IT and communication infrastructure that allows "work from home," and we are now implementing it for most staff. Our office will remain "virtually" open during business hours, even if we aren’t all convening every day at our office on Murchison. Our phones will be answered as usual, and business will proceed as normally as possible.
These next few weeks and maybe months will have challenges and will require different ways to continue to work and communicate with you. There will be more online meetings and collaboration rather in person and hopefully we will all come out of this crisis sooner rather than later and stronger.
Hope you are all safe in your community with your family.
