PDI has been monitoring the COVID-19 epidemic (SARS-CoV-2 virus), previously identified as 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), to provide you the most current information to help manage this outbreak.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus still has not been made readily available by the CDC for testing. As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the CDC website and resources for updates and further guidance. In the meantime, we recommend that the general public continues to observe good personal hygiene practices, including hand washing, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette, as well as surface disinfection using an EPA-registered product.

We will provide you with updates as they become available.
