COVID-19 Mitigation Plan

GALVmed is keeping a close watch on the COVID-19 situation across the world and has adopted precautionary measures in line with government guidance.  GALVmed staff have been instructed to follow regional advice and work from home in keeping with local government recommendations.  GALVmed also cancelled all business travel and face-to-face meetings until further notice.  This is to minimize health risks to our staff, their families, partners and society at large.

It is our aim to maintain business-as-usual, but ask for your understanding should the current COVID-19 epidemic lead to any delays or disruptions in business matters.
