NCIL Update on COVID-19

As many of you know, NCIL’s staff is operating under a mandatory remote work policy through at least the end of March. Current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and other public health experts make it seem likely this is policy will be extended into April. NCIL staff is fully equipped for telework and our work will continue unabated. There are, however, a few things we want to highlight during our time away from our physical office.

  • Items mailed to NCIL’s office will not be received right away. While we have picked up our mail this week, items received in the next few days and weeks may not be received or processed right away.
  • We encourage everyone to use email as much as possible during this situation, especially related to items you may normally mail or fax to us. A list of NCIL staff email addresses is available on our website.
  • Call forwarding is in place and you can still call our office line to reach staff. Follow the prompts in the automated system to reach the staff person you want to talk to.
  • We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and continuing our work on all of NCIL’s projects, events, and policy priorities.

We will continue to keep you updated with more information as it is available. In the meantime, we have created a web page to collect information, resources, and opportunities regarding COVID-19. View it at ncil.org/covid-19.
