The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) has created a sense of urgency for companies, including financial institutions, to review and update their pandemic plans. Most of those plans hadn’t been exercised, reviewed, or even updated since the H1N1 outbreak in 2009.
Just how severe the outbreak will get both in the United States and around the world remains to be seen over the coming weeks and months. However, it has already appeared on every continent other than Antarctica and has infected almost 100,000 individuals worldwide with more reported daily.
Now, is a good time to dust off and update the pandemic plan to make sure it is current the way your business operates today.
