As we work through the challenges posed by the pandemic of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and adjust to our “new normal” we must recognize that while the paradigm may not shift entirely, it is shifting significantly. Amid system shock and adapting, it may be tempting to think about and seek familiarity in how things used to be. However, it is important that we focus on the way things are at present and how best to adapt,
keep moving forward, and work towards recovery.

HIEDB’s resilience, relevance, and value to our members will be maintained and our business conducted as seamlessly as possible, by managing expectations and maintaining good communications.

Please note that HIEDB is deliberately not providing updates or
serving as an information broker on COVID-19 as there are several official, direct-source sites where one should be seeking such information.
