The outbreak of COVID-19 is forcing people and businesses around the world to adjust to new routines and to develop strategies to deal with this continually emerging global health crisis. Although the Swiss federal government encourages people to work from home, specialized institutions, including the IT'IS Foundation, are allowed to continue operations, so long as social distancing requirements can be fulfilled.
Especially now, our top priority is the safety of our employees and their loved ones, and we are taking every precaution necessary to minimize COVID-19 transmission. Currently, about two-thirds of our Z43 colleagues are working exclusively from home, while the others are working in alternating shifts to accomplish tasks that require laboratory work or access to hardware, etc. As of now, we have managed to keep disruption to a minimum while we maintain our core operations at IT'IS, and, at the moment, we are confident that we can meet all of our commitments without delay.
It goes without saying that we are monitoring the novel corona virus situation daily, and, should the situation change in such a way that it impacts our ability to continue work on a project, we will contact the project partners immediately to discuss alternative solutions.
Please go to our COVID-19 webpage, which will be periodically updated so long as the corona virus situation remains dynamic.
