NATO response to COVID-19
NATO, together with other international organizations, is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and all NATO Allies have taken preventative measures.
We welcome the leading efforts of the World Health Organization to raise awareness and provide guidance to countries and individuals.
NATO military medical staff remain vigilant. They are monitoring any potential impact for NATO troops deployed on operations.

Prior to the positive test, NATO had already taken preventative measures at our headquarters, based on guidance from the World Health Organization, to reduce the risk of the further spread of infection. These include the temporary suspension of certain staff travel, encouraging staff to work from 五福彩票App下载, and the temporary suspension of group visits to NATO HQ in Brussels.
