Working with APS during these Unprecedented Times
As we are all aware, the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has prompted all of us as individuals and corporations to rethink our current practices to ensure the health and wellness of our communities. We are constantly needing to adjust to this ever-evolving situation and are re-defining a new normal every day.
Starting tomorrow night, March 27th, Minnesota will be enacting a “stay-at-home” order that asks Minnesotans to stay home except for those participating in essential needs and services. As a life science research organization supporting the healthcare industry, medical supply chain and the evaluation of new COVID-19 therapies, APS is categorized as an essential business. We will continue to operate during this period while complying with all of the Executive Orders issued by Governor Tim Walz.
At APS, we are taking measures to ensure the health and safety of our team and sponsors. We are leveraging our business continuity plans to ensure there is minimal disruption to the research services we provide. We have the necessary bandwidth to continue operations throughout the facility, from study starts to the essentials of daily animal care.
When considering who from your team should attend procedures at APS, please keep in mind that we have the technology and infrastructure to support real time streaming or recording of study procedures so that individuals offsite have the opportunity to participate and/or review study procedures.
We will continue to monitor the evolving situation and adjust as necessary. Thank you for your continued cooperation during these critical times. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
Stay Safe and Healthy,
The APS Team
