COVID-19 has significantly changed all our lives in very short order. To reduce the risk of the disease spread, 100% of Baby-Friendly USA staff are working remotely. We are regularly monitoring our emails, compiling your questions and developing plans.
Our team is meeting on a daily basis and carefully weighing out next steps. Our first priority has been to deal with rescheduling of on-site assessments. There are many issues we have had to work out on that topic. In addition, we are thinking through a plan for each phase of the Baby-Friendly Designation and Re-designation processes. No specific decisions have been made yet, but we are making progress on plans to move forward in a streamlined manner. We anticipate releasing plans shortly. We are working through issues as fast as we can.
We thank all those working on the front lines of combating this virus for your dedication and commitment to the health of our nation. Our thoughts are with you.
