Coronavirus COVID-19

In winter 2019 into spring 2020, the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, swept across the globe killing thousands. It spread across the globe resulting in the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the virus a global pandemic. As countries across the world declared lockdowns and shelter in place orders to slow the spread of the virus, water quality professionals were declared "essential personnel" and continued to work tirelessly to bring safe drinking water to their customers.
