COVID-19 Update for CANS Members – May 28, 2021
The following message was sent Friday, May 28, 2021. We encourage CANS member firms to review the relevant recommendations and follow current public health measures.
CANS Office Closure
CANS is taking proactive measures to reduce the spread of the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, CANS office will remain closed to members the week of May 31, while still offering CANS services remotely/virtually.
Our goal is to maintain a safe environment for both CANS staff, members, and visitors to our office. We have been monitoring the most recent wave of the pandemic and our staff are fully prepared to work remotely, having done so successfully over the last year. Please understand that due to our office closure, there may be delays in the services we provide, but we are doing everything to keep any issues to a minimum.
