As such, we are closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). We want to share with you the actions we are taking to help protect our employees and customers.

We advised our employees to follow the public health authorities' guidance regarding hygiene and personal travel, and we reinforced employees who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home and consult with a medical professional. We limited business travel and encouraged employees to leverage technology to maintain business duties as we can.

We have measures in place so that we can complete business needs and will keep you updated on our Action Plan. If needed, we will have staff working from home to maintain our level of service.

We have been seeing some closures in various court systems which affect our ability to research criminal records. In addition, with schools closings in certain areas, we are seeing delays in education verifications. This is a fluid situation and we will continue to monitor these areas and update you as information becomes available.
